March Madness 2017

For the “spring break season” from late February through March, YRNO was again lucky enough to host and work with hundreds of young people volunteering from around the country to further engage youth in the betterment of the New Orleans community.

Students from Akron’s Lebron James Family Foundation, University of Calgary, University of Virginia, NOVA Southeastern University, Marquette University, University of Central Florida Honors College, USF St. Petersburg, the Bethlehem Center in Tennessee, Elon University, Holton Arms School, SALT Travel, and UC State San Bernadino all pitched in at projects around the city.

Projects included drywall and painting the “Purple House” on St. Ann, blight reduction in Central City with our partner Ms. Candice, and YRNO’s continued effort working with individual homeowners in New Orleans East to recover from February’s devastating tornado.
