THE BEEZ NEEZ
IN 2012, A GROUP OF FRIENDS GOT TOGETHER TO FIGURE OUT THE BEST WAY TO GIVE BACK TO THEIR FORMER HIGH SCHOOL. AS A RESULT, BEE LEGACY, A MENTORING AND LEADERSHIP GUIDANCE PROGRAM FOR TEENAGE GIRLS WAS FORMED! BY REINFORCING THE RICH VALUES AND TRADITIONS FROM OUR HIGH SCHOOL EXPERIENCE WE AIM TO NOT ONLY IMPACT YOUNG WOMEN'S LIVES THROUGH IMPROVED SELF-ESTEEM AND SELF-WORTH, INSTILLED PRIDE IN THEIR COMMUNITIES, AND ENCOURAGEMENT TO EXCEL; BUT TO ALSO REINFORCE A SENSE OF COMMUNITY THROUGH VOLUNTEER PARTICIPATION AND PARTNERSHIPS IN NEW ORLEANS AND BEYOND.
Our mission is to cultivate young women, each of whom has unique gifts and talents, to improve not only their local but global communities. We seek to pull together amazing women to provide inspirational imagery and guidance for teens in grades 9th-12th who have chosen this program as their foundation for college prep and womanhood alike. By providing inspirational leadership, volunteers and special guests work with participants to identify, prepare and overcome frequent challenges currently facing young women today with a special focus on their personal and professional development.
