The Civil Rights Movement awakened an entire nation to the racial injustices faced by Black Americans. Travel along the US Civil Rights Trail, from Atlanta to Selma, and learn about civil rights history, its parallels to today and the ongoing struggle. Continue on to New Orleans, where the effects of Hurricane Katrina unveiled the legacy of racial and class stratification. Volunteer on active build sites to reconstruct homes and help those directly affected, under the direction of SBP and their AmeriCorps members. On this American South & New Orleans program, you’ll also participate in many recreational activities including an alligator swamp airboat tour, zipline adventure and cooking class. All in all, this teen summer program offers an incredible experience: a meaningful tour, a sense of community, hands-on homebuilding skills, teamwork, and fun.
