Program Description:

After Hurricane Katrina and the broken levees flooded New Orleans in 2005, the city as it was known to thousands of people seemed destroyed. In the years since, New Orleans has made huge strides in recovering. But help is still needed. Six years after the floods, 10,000 families were still without homes as a direct effect of the storm (St. Bernard Project). You and your group can help those affected by this disaster by building, insulating, and painting homes; serving meals in soup kitchens; sorting donations at a food bank; and restoring the Bayou. Our most popular destination by far, New Orleans is a beautiful city with a rich local culture. You’ll be inspired, educated, and entertained on your volunteer vacation to the Big Easy.

Program Long-Term Success:

By the end of 2012, Volunteer Expeditions will have brought over 1,200 volunteers to New Orleans. These volunteers have helped rebuild more than 80 houses and served hundreds of meals to the homeless and hungry. Local organizations and businesses get big boosts from the out-of-town volunteers, and the volunteers go back to their homes all over the country inspired by the city of New Orleans.
