New Orleans is a rich, vibrant city but many of its neighborhoods have suffered from chronic disinvestment, leaving them struggling to make the most of limited resources. Through our Community Revitalization program we work with neighborhoods to create and execute community based volunteer projects that address local needs while offering volunteers meaningful service experiences.  Our Community Revitalization program is a multi-pronged approached that addresses the intertwined issues of education, blight, health and crime. Both locals and visitors can participate in Community Revitalization.

 

Examples of projects include:
  • Building community gardens with partner organizations like the Treme Community Garden
  • Increasing educational expereince for students by working on service projects at Einstein Charter, Sylvanie Williams, and other schools throughtout the city
  • Increasing students' physical activity by painint ground games at elementary schools and parks
  • Fighting blight through lot clearings and boarding up open strutures
