Our Board of Directors is made up of six community advocates who came together with a vision of providing a positive learning environment for New Orleans urban youth. In addition to our directors, we have two experienced Assistant Directors.

When educating children, we reap what we sow. We at the Roots of Success Summer Camp feel that it is our duty to provide a solid foundation for lifelong learning and growth. In building this foundation we hope to incorporate hands on learning experiences and guided practice. To meet that goal and develop leadership skills, we are including in our staff a number of senior and junior Youth Counselors. The senior counselors range in age from 18-20, while the junior counselors are 15-17 years old. These young people have been selected for their unique skills, talents, and potential to flourish in a leadership role. Some of our counselors have been recruited through their involvement with the Shack Brown Foundation, while others have been recommended to us through their work with the Juvenile Justice Project of Louisiana’s Young Adults Striving for Success (YASS) program. The Roots of Success Program has decided to partner with these organizations due to our shared goals of promoting youth development regardless of socioeconomic barriers.
