In the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina, New Orleans’s school system was, like everything else in the city, turned upside down. That’s led to the creation of Kids Rethink New Orleans Schools, a youth-based non-profit that believes students should have a say in how their schools are run. This video shows how students in the program imagined what “wellness” meant to their communities. It’s a fun, engaging, and inspiring look at youth leadership. Enjoy!
