YRNO engages local youth in the betterment of the New Orleans community.
Youth Rebuilding New Orleans will be the premier volunteering opportunity for youth ages 16-21. 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
