Universities - Alternative spring / winter / fall break
New Orleans is a popular destination for university and college groups interested in volunteering during their various breaks. The city has benefited immensely from dedicated volunteers like you who commit their cherished breaks from schoolwork to help with rebuilding efforts.
As a volunteer-based organization, our biggest impact naturally coincides with these influxes of student volunteers. Looking for a volunteer opportunity for your break? Help us increase our impact and make New Orleans more sustainable! We are happy to take your group for any or all of the days that you will be here in New Orleans.
If you are interested in signing up, visit our VOLUNTEER page. We will contact you shortly to discuss details.
If you work with us for a full week, we can offer you other learning opportunities to engage your group, such as hour-long discussions about energy efficiency and sustainability led by our executive director and other staff members as well as building backyard vegetable gardens.
