Tulane School of Science and Engineering

Yesterday we had several graduate students from the Tulane School of Science and Engineering painting at our South Scott Street side project. They were kind enough to spend a day of their spring break volunteering with us! Touching up.   Behind bars.   Reverse angle.   Atop the scaffolding.   Masked marvel.   Exhibiting meticulousness.  

Cape Henry Collegiate

On Friday we had a great group from Cape Henry Collegiate in Virginia working with us at our St. Ann Street properties, as you can see below. The school has volunteered with YRNO before and we were thrilled to have them back. Thanks for your service and your generous donation!!!        

Volunteers in town for spring break to rebuild neighborhood

Susan Isaacs visited YRNO when students from Elon University were at our St. Ann Street properties.

Central Washington University

Today we have a group from Central Washington University volunteering at our South Scott Street side project. The group leader–Joanne Perez–was also part of the NASPA group that was at the same site this past Saturday. We thank her and her CWU crew for their time and generous donation! Prince gives the safety speech.     Inside lookin’ good!     Mismatched socks?     Smooth strokes.  

UCLA

This week we have another volunteer group from UCLA staying in our bunkhouse for a second straight year. The 10 young ladies have been hard at work yesterday and today helping out Prince and Danielle at our South Scott Street side project! Danielle assigns tasks.   Getting gloves.   We can’t brush hair with these, right?   Dynamic duo.     Smoothing it out.     Exhibiting meticulousness.     Sanding it down.  

Elon University

This week we have a volunteer group from Elon University staying in our bunkhouse for a second straight year and working at our St. Ann Street properties. They got started on joists and flooring this morning, as you can see below! Getting oriented.   Protect those fingers!   Dynamic duo.   How heavy is it?   I’ll let you guys handle this.   Out from under.   Down the line.     Lil’ help, please!   Hammer time!   Take it away!   Too much fun.   Supervising in progress.   The whole group.  

#NASPA15 community service

Saturday afternoon we had a group of student affairs administrators from all over the country working with us at our South Scott Street side project. NASPA is having a conference in New Orleans this week and some of the attendees took time out to help our community. Thanks for your volunteer service! Smooth strokes.   Prince gets in on the action.   A rallying cry of Nova Southeastern University or a message for the boss?   Are we done yet?   Caught in the act!   New Jersey in the house!   Eyes on the prize!   Reverse angle.  

Holton-Arms School

Today and tomorrow we have a recurring group from Holton-Arms School in Maryland volunteering at our St. Ann Street properties. The weather was beautiful for day one and hopefully it will hold up for another. Check out the action below! Orientation time.   Volunteering for tasks.   You can make it!   Too much fun.   Scraping away.   Will works the wall.   Laser focus.   Down the line.   Ceiling duty.   Smile!   A little trim.  

Purdue University

This week we have another “March Madness” bunkhouse crew from the St. Thomas Aquinas Catholic Center of Purdue University volunteering with us. They’re split between homeowner side projects on Oleander and South Scott Streets, as you can see below. Following the University of Virginia last week, they’re our second group whose school will take part in the hoop version of the Madness!   Bend it like Beckham!     Danielle gives the safety speech.     Let’s paint.     Piling it up.      

New Mexico Tech

Our third week of “March volunteer Madness” includes a group of nine students from New Mexico Tech assigned to our St. Ann Street properties. They’ll have their work cut out for them matching the crew that came last year, although there’s one holdover and we’re confident the rest of the young engineers are up to the task! Safety speech time.   Class in session!     Holding it down for Traelle.   Kenyon gives guidance.   Dynamic duo.     Marking it off.   We got this!   Laser focus.   Fearsome foursome.   Teamwork.   Perfectly measured.   Traelle […]
