Volunteer groups

We cordially invite volunteer groups worldwide to join our ranks in New Orleans. Youth Rebuilding New Orleans is happy to host groups of all sizes. We regularly work with school trips, church groups, alternative spring breaks, and corporate volunteer groups to create a personalized experience for all. Whether you’re an alternative spring break group that wants to work an entire week or part of a family reunion that wants to just spend the morning with us, we would love to facilitate your visit and find some much-needed work for you to help out with.

We will work with your volunteer group to provide a schedule that fits your timetable, help your group find accommodations, and make recommendations on where you should sightsee and eat while in New Orleans. If you have any questions, check the Frequently Asked Questions page or fill out our form to the right.

Volunteers can help rebuild homes in various stages of construction from demolition to touch-up painting. It is impossible to know exactly what each group will be doing ahead of time, but the list below highlights some of the most common jobs we entrust to our volunteer groups:


  • Demolition
  • Painting
  • Landscaping
  • Tiling
  • Carpentry
  • Framing
  • Sheet-rocking
  • Floating
