Volunteer in New Orleans and Enhance your NeighborWorks Training Institute Experience!

As part of the NeighborWorks Training Institute in New Orleans, Louisiana, we’re offering participants a unique and meaningful opportunity to play a role in the continuing restoration of neighborhoods devastated by Hurricane Katrina.

The institute takes place March 1-5, and around that time we are encouraging participants to volunteer on days on which they may not otherwise be attending classes. Opportunities are available on Sunday, February 28, before the Institute, as well as on Wednesday, March 3 and Thursday, March 4.

On those days, volunteers will be divided into teams to work on houses in various forms of completion. Volunteers do not need to be skilled in construction to participate — there will be jobs for everyone, from landscaping and hardscaping to painting and other rehab work, both inside and out.

Registration to volunteer is separate from registration to attend the NTI. Find out more here. We hope you will consider participating in this exciting and rewarding opportunity!
