"The necessity of The Milne Inspiration Center (The MIC) was born in the belief that youth of New Orleans and the Africa Diaspora should be given intentional opportunities to become contributors to society through an innovative variety of pathways of engagement. I believe it will take tremendous, intentional community collaboration to ensure the success of youth and I want to do my part."
- Le'Kedra Robertson
