Description

While progress has been made in the years since the levees breached during Hurricane Katrina, New Orleans still has a long way to go to fully recover from the storm. Be part of the recovery process as you help rebuild homes and assist the city and surrounding parishes to become greener through grassroots initiatives. When not working on service projects, there will be time to enjoy the charm of this amazing city. This program is for students who are interested in learning about New Orleans’ recovery while experiencing the local culture and flavor of the area.
