iHelpz: Youth Empowerment Project

 Since 2013, iHelpz has been dedicated to making a positive impact on the community, with a particular focus on the areas of the city that are still recovering from Hurricane Katrina and low-income and BIPOC communities. At iHelpz, we embody three core values: thoughtfulness, impact, and innovation. Our projects are centered around providing uplifting and enriching experiences for those who need it most. We focus on school campuses and parks, because we believe that every child deserves a safe, fun, and beautiful environment to learn and play in, regardless of their family's socioeconomic status. Over the past 11 years, iSeatz has contributed over 20,000 service hours and had a financial impact of over $350,000 through our twice-annual service days. iHelpz was initially the idea of an individual staff member, which demonstrates our commitment to fostering and supporting innovative ideas from all levels of our staff. Today, iHelpz has become an integral part of our company culture and continues to make a positive impact on the community.
