How to Break in as youth choir director-community oriented?

Hi Everyone,

I grew up singing in choir and now am wanting to start one of my own.  I am a licensed teacher, and singer, I  have had some experience with my own choirs through other organizations, but most of all I have a burning desire and passion and I believe calling for developing my own community group.  It is a broad question, but if anyone has any suggestions, I would appreciate it !
