The Nola Chic Give Nola Day Charity Choice: High Voltage

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.

In the fall of 2003, High Voltage began to collaborate with other non-profit organizations serving youth including Positive Impact, Joseph A Cuillier, Sr. Career Center and New Orleans Video Access Center in order to order to serve more young people in the New Orleans Community

Students enrolled in our programs are eligible for high school (community service) and college credits. Each year we offer programs that help build self-esteem, critical thinking skills, social responsibility, healthy lifestyles, as well as provide therapeutic recreation.

”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
