Mission Statement

APEX is a community-based youth center that provides a breadth of structured activities to at-risk youth and neighborhood teens to promote and reinforce pro-social behavioral skills and leadership development through our theme of "Reconciliation, Never Retaliation." Looking for someone with expansive creative thinking and enthusiasm, the program intern will have will assist in design and implementation of various programs inspired by the intern and the program director while managing current programs. Under the supervision of the program director, this intern opportunity provides an undergraduate student with a view into the administrative tasks of programming for youth and the application of creative thinking.

Description

The APEX is a different type of community and youth center. We provide not only structured activities, mentoring and tutoring, but will do so within a context of preparing our children to be productive and community-minded adults. Our ultimate objective is to create cycles of creativity and accountability, therefore reducing cycles of poverty, crime, illiteracy and neglect.

We are committed to bringing to the children of New Orleans:

Accountable Programs that have personal and community value based on sound guidelines and curriculum.

Actionable Objectives that enrich the lives of children and teens and prepare them for adulthood through education and mentoring.

Tangible Results through production of products for the community at large, i.e. visual and fine art performances, art shows, websites and newspaper publication.

Sustainable Outcomes by partnering with other community based organizations and creating programs that teach and practice sustainability.
