We believe that all children have tremendous potential – that regardless of their backgrounds or environment every child deserves the opportunity to discover their talents, find their passion, and have success. We are a team of passionate business leaders, educators, politicians, film professionals, parents, students, visionaries, and volunteers committed to making an impact on the lives of New Orleans youth.
