Martha Landrum is Vice-President of Marketing and Communications for the Greater New Orleans Foundation. Martha tells us about an exciting new initiative called Impact 100. This group of 100 New Orleans women seeks to facilitate transformative change in local non-profit organizations in a unique way: each woman annually contributes $1100. toward the project. The group then gives the resulting sizable gift to a local non-profit organization. As Martha explains, the city has many non-profit organizations that do wonderful work, and after much consideration, the women of Impact 100 decided to give $100,000 to an organization that provides youth development services: The Youth Empowerment Project (YEP). In this podcast, Melissa Sawyer, Co-Founder and Executive Director of YEP, also joins us to talk about Impact 100's wonderful gift, and describe some of the new programs and services YEP has developed to help at-risk youth in New Orleans.
