WHO WE ARE

We are leaders in our homes, our schools, our work, and our communities. We have proven experience guiding students to success. Our mission is to inspire and develop our global community of youth and volunteers to a life dedicated to leadership, service and innovation. Our vision is to motivate and empower individuals to make a positive difference within our global society, through understanding and action, based on effective and compassionate leadership.

Each year, every Louisiana high school is invited to sponsor up to two students to attend the Louisiana Hugh O'Brian Youth Leadership Seminar. This event, hosted by our dedicated volunteer staff, develops leadership in students through panels of expert speakers and key note addresses, volunteerism, team-building exercises, and peer learning. These students, known as ambassadors, then take their new knowledge back to their schools and communities to serve as change agents and leaders.
