The mission of TeensLead, L.L.C. is to connect New Orleans area students and incoming volunteers to beautification and service projects in New Orleans; and to further develop individual leadership skills. We intend on achieving this through three goals. 1) Connecting local high school students with service projects in New Orleans. Most New Orleans high school students require service hours to complete their high school education. TeensLead will not only supply service requirements through separate service projects, but re-acquaint local students with their community. 2) Connecting incoming volunteers with different service projects in New Orleans. These projects will assist in the recovery of New Orleans, after the damage caused by hurricanes Katrina and Rita. This aspect of TeensLead will properly educate volunteers about society and community life in Post-Katrina New Orleans. 3) Developing individual leadership skills. Through separate service projects, TeensLead will assist teenagers in developing leadership skills and increase personal desire for community activism and involvement.
