Live It Out is a non-profit organization of high schoolers who engage their community's resources to help at-risk high school students unravel their potential. Our mission is to reduce dropouts by helping teens discover their passions and motivations through leadership, communication, creativity, and energy skills. It was founded in September of 2016 by Juliana Esparza (HS junior) and Mercedes Milke (HS freshman), in The Woodlands, TX and it's first event consisted of a 5-day summer camp.
