At the start the pandemic, two Generation Success Youth Ambassadors decided they needed a platform to discuss current local, national, and global issues. Those interns, Leoance Williams, III of St. Augustine HS c/o 22 and Zion Kenney of Warren Easton Charter High School c/o 22, designed the panel and the topics to be discussed, invited participants, and marketed their event. Students discussed COVID19 and their education, race relations, and the future. The first panel, which can be found here, spun off with the NOPD asking to join the discussion with our students. Thus, panel two included (3) New Orleans Police Department Sargents and Supervisors. Listen or watch Panel 2 here Now, our students have joined the NOPD for their “Humanizing the Badge” campaign in New Orleans. Panel 2 can be found here.
