New Orleans Volunteer Program for Teens

Over the past few years, thousands of people in New Orleans have lost their homes due to hurricanes. Rebuilding efforts have been ongoing, but recent natural disasters, most notably Hurricane Ida, a category 4 storm that hit the region in August of 2021, have left much work to be done. This summer community service program for teens is an opportunity for participants to work together under the direction of SBP and their AmeriCorps members on an active build site and directly help displaced families return home. When not helping to rebuild these homes, we’ll be enjoying the highlights of New Orleans and learning about the rich history and culture of the area. All in all, this teen summer program offers an incredible experience with a meaningful project, a sense of community, hands-on homebuilding skills, teamwork, and fun!
