Read more about The Big EASY through the eyes of a teen participant, Leah Marcone.
One thing i learned here in new Orleans is that it is not just about changing the world, and making a difference in the world. Changing one person's life or just making an impact for one person is just as valuable. The people living in the neighborhood we had our service in, were so grateful for our help. Although there are multiple organizations that are helping people who suffered from hurricane Katrina, the members of the neighborhood said they don't get much help in their neighborhood. To have 1400 people help neighborhoods throughout New Orleans, was amazing.
