Interested in volunteer work? New Orleans needs you! At Youth Rebuilding New Orleans we are happy to host volunteer groups looking to complete community service projects in our city. Whether you are in town for only a day or want to spend a spring break volunteering in New Orleans, we can host you.

We specialize in providing hands-on learning experiences to young people interested in learning about construction, leadership development, financial literacy, homeownership, and more. Whether you are looking for a fun and meaningful community service experience or an educational service learning opportunity we will work with you to customize the event.

Our projects vary in size and scope but do not require any trade skills. We are happy to accommodate local and out of state groups that are looking for a meaningful volunteer work experience. If you would like to volunteer with us or schedule a date please contact us for more information. You can also look at our calendar for more information on available dates.

A traditional day’s work can include the following: demolition, painting, landscaping, tiling, light construction, framing, sheet-rocking, floating, etc. The projects assigned are also determined by skill level. Though there are many ailing urban centers in the U.S., if you want non-bureaucratic, hands-on, volunteer work, New Orleans could use it.

If you plan on working with us, we ask that you bring a signed copy* of our volunteer release form found below. (*Volunteers under 18 must have parental consent.)
