DEA's New Orleans Division Office hosted two young men, Brian Welch and Matthew Harrison, from the New Orleans Public Schools' World of Work Academy from July 15 - July 31, 2003. The World of Work Academy places young boys and girls ages 13-15 with business mentors allowing the children to see the importance of obtaining an education and how adults employ their education in the work environment. Children who take part in the program generally return to school with renewed vigor and eagerness to excel.

Brian and Matthew toured the DEA New Orleans Division Office and were exposed to the many facets of DEA. Highlights included viewing seized money, a money counter, guns and drugs that were seized with a search warrant, a tour of the armory, and approximately 1,800 pounds of marijuana awaiting destruction. Brian and Matthew also accompanied Special Agent George Cazenavette and SFC Melissa Vosburg to Greenlawn Terrace Elementary School in Kenner, Louisiana. At Greenlawn Terrace, Brian and Matthew presented two anti-drug videos to children attending a summer camp. The day before the presentation, they viewed the videos and prepared questions to ask the children during question and answer periods.

At the end of the program Special Agent in Charge James D. Craig presented Brian and Matthew with plaques expressing gratitude for their support of drug prevention. Both young men conveyed to SAC Craig that they enjoyed their time spent with DEA and had a better understanding and appreciation of what DEA does for the community.
