We have one mission: to inspire the next generation of first responders through education, mentorship, and advocacy. We believe that youth can be a catalyst toward engendering a society that more actively embraces hurricane preparedness and wetlands restoration.
Our purpose is to develop civic leadership through literacy programs. We create award-winning children’s books, educational curricula and mentoring initiatives that enhance individual and community capacity.
Our program priorities are to: (1) Donate new books to kids in-need, (2) Mentor youth and help them prepare for Hurricane Season, (3) Train inmates during job ready and civil rights workshops, (4) Advocate for the restoration of Louisiana wetlands, (5) Deliver humanitarian relief within distressed communities, and (6) Provide scholarships for leadership development training.
