VAYLA: I need a leader who…

Today as we prepare for the NORDC Special Meeting, we are thrilled to share a video from VAYLA of New Orleans. Youth from VAYLA of New Orleans, took the “I have a leader…” format and truly made it their own and we think the results are inspiring!  Every New Orleans Recreation Development Commission (NORDC) stakeholder agrees that creating exceptional service and opportunities for New Orleans children, youth and families is the ultimate goal of the Chief Executive Officer search, help us reach this goal by sharing these direct pleas from youth to the adults who help shape their future. Please share this link nolayouth.org/videoVAYLA with your mailing lists to help publicize youth voice!

NORDC will hold a special meeting on Monday, February 6, 2012 at 5pm in City Council Chambers to interview the remaining CEO candidates, finalize the selection process and hear from the public. We encourage all interested community members to attend this important meeting and help make sure the needs expressed by youth are heard. The Commission’s regular meeting is scheduled for the following day, February 7, 2012 at 5pm in City Council Chambers. If the Search Committee provides a way for community members to submit questions to the candidates prior to the meeting we will pass on that information.
