Youth Rebuilding New Orleans engages local youth in the recovery and rebirth of the New Orleans area, equips young people with valuable job and life skills, and reduces blight by rebuilding distressed and foreclosed homes.
Youth Rebuilding New Orleans will be the premier volunteering opportunity for youth ages 15-24. We will provide best-in-class skills training to all participants. We will
make home ownership accessible to all area teachers.
Rebuilding efforts are not only aimed at rebuilding the sticks and bricks of devastated
families, but at revitalizing the emotional and spiritual health of each neighbor, and
thus, collectively, reenergizing the soul of our city. We will transform the boundless
energy and optimism of youth into hope for lifeless neighborhoods.
• Service through love and concern
• Dignity through respect for another’s home
• Justice through advocacy and empowerment for neighborhoods
• Racial harmony through collective projects
• Unity in the one voice of our youth
