The mission of Global Shapers is to build a global community of outstanding young people committed to improving the state of the world. 

To achieve its mission, the Global Shapers Community is built on a network of local Hubs located in each major city/region in the world. 

The Global Shapers Community is a network of over 450 international hubs designed to target and engage emerging leaders under 30 who want to make an impact on their communities. Since launching as an initiative of the World Economic Forum four years ago, there are now over 5,800 members around the world.

The Global Shapers New Orleans hub is a group developed and led by young people who want to make a positive impact on the local community.
