Our hope and desire is to “inspire youth to shape their world”. We believe in reaching beyond the borders of our communities, and sharing our lives and experiences with others. We want to give our CEO alumni the challenge, experience and opportunity of making an impact on their world.
Over March Break, we take a team of CEOs to New Orleans. Last year, CEOs had the opportunity to run a daily program at a Kids Club, aid in yard clean up, build a ramp for a neighbour who could not enter her home, visit the elderly in a nursing home and serve the homeless. The CEOs were able to take on a new challenge, gain memorable experiences and seize an opportunity to help shape their world.
I never would have considered the positive impact serving in New Orleans would have on my life. The seven days of service were comparable to no other while being with some of my closest friends and soon-to-become closest friends, seeing a new perspective on life through meeting new people, experiencing new opportunities, and embracing a side of myself which I had not known before. - Jessica Cluett
