Break Description


Jump start your JMU experience this summer with a week of meaningful service and community engagement down in The Big Easy. New Orleans, a vivacious and culturally diverse city, is still experiencing the challenges of rebuilding what was destroyed by Hurricane Katrina in 2005. Back then, JMU made a commitment to aid in the rebuilding of houses and community; we continue this effort today by working alongside Camp Restore. This community partner aims to house and connect volunteers with service focused on community restoration and reconstruction of homes within areas most deeply affected. During our time we will learn more about the city, the culture, the effects of the storm, and engage in meaningful service which may include lot clearing, construction, home renovation and other projects. Grab your work boots and join us this summer!
