Youth Service Experiences, New Orleans, place participants in the Lower 9th Ward to engage in community and experiential learning. We complete day-long projects with community members and learn about issues surrounding poverty.
Participants share in the planning and programming of the trip. We meet every Sunday from 2-4 to plan the service experience.
