High Voltage Youth Camp was founded in 1991 by, Katherine Shawrri Johnson, Bernadotte Glover and Judy Hamilton to provide educational and recreational programs to residents of the Iberville Housing Development and Covenant House New Orleans. Ms. Johnson, Ms. Glover and Mr. Lee Baker recruited volunteer staff to provide services at the St. Jude Community Center in New Orleans for the program. In January 2003, High Voltage was incorporated, and Ms. Claudia Washington and Phillis Everage joined the Board of Directors.
”As new technology emerges and rewards those that live in the moment, it’s important that we lean on all that we’ve learned in our lives to help guide us to through the tough decisions that we will face in the future. High Voltage taught me that being confident can only get me so far. It’s just as important to develop a go-giver attitude and be respectful to all of humanity. I take those lessons with me everywhere I go.” – Lionel Acker”
