Hurricane Katrina displaced more than 600,000 people in the New Orleans area. Over 15 years later, many have still not returned home. Rebuilding efforts have been ongoing but recent natural disasters, including a January 2017 EF3 tornado, have left much work still to do. This New Orleans summer community service program for teens is an opportunity to work under the direction of Westcoast Connection, SBP and their AmeriCorps members on an active build site to directly help with the rebuilding efforts. When not restoring homes, participants on this New Orleans volunteer trip will get to explore the city daily. Take a guided Segway tour through the French Quarter, enjoy a night of cajun dinner and dancing, explore the history of civil rights and slavery and have an incredible adventure in the swamps of the bayou on an airboat alligator tour. All in all, this teen summer program offers an incredible experience: a meaningful project, a sense of community, hands-on homebuilding skills, teamwork, and fun.
