New Orleans Service Trip - Registration
J-LOFT is thrilled to offer its first Service Trip to New Orleans, in partnership with Volunteer Ventures and Youth Rebuilding New Orleans.
The trip will take place during Spring Break – April 16-21 (Sunday-Friday), and is open for students in grades 8-12, who will be 14 years old by the time of the trip.
For students who attend schools that are in session during that time, we would provide an excused absence letter.
During the days we will work together with YRNO on one (or several) of their current renovation projects. Specific work can vary from painting, building house frames, cleaning debris, and other tasks. On our free time, we will visit local attractions such as the Museum of the Southern Jewish Experience, a youth Jazz club, go on a Mississippi cruise, as well as other local attractions.
Accommodation will be provided by YRNO in bunk houses, and most meals will be made in the shared kitchen by the participants.
In addition to the student-participants, we are looking for 2-4 parent chaperons. It is recommended that Chaperons have a valid driver’s license and are willing to drive a large van in New Orleans.
