Generation One exists to physically and spiritually transform the Third Ward community by creating an environment of opportunity that empowers individuals and families to break out of the cycle of generational poverty. They empower the next generation by working with the youth in the community in order to break the cycle of poverty. Throughout the week, they provide several relationship driven programs to help educate and develop life skills, and run a one-of-a-kind private Christian school, Generation One Academy. They also have a vision of rebuilding the Third Ward. Generation One brings the hands and feet of Jesus into the community to show the love of Christ by painting homes, clearing lots and demolishing dilapidated buildings.
Members serving with Generation One have several opportunities from working with kids in the community to restoring homes in the area. The many different options make it a great place for anyone looking to serve.
