Long-term volunteering: stay with us a while!
New Orleans is an amazing place with a rich history and living culture. Visitors only have to see it once to realize there is something special here that compels them to stay- sometimes much longer than they expected!
Project Homecoming offers prospective volunteers a unique opportunity to experience this city, while helping New Orleans residents return home!
Spend anywhere from 1 to 3 months in New Orleans and build relationships within the Project Homecoming community, while immersing yourself in the history and culture around you.
We ask that you commit to serve with us at least 32 hours a week in the construction field. In exchange we offer hostel style housing, ongoing training and team building opportunities!
"Come as a stranger, leave as a friend"
Project Homecoming’s Long-Term Volunteer (LTV) Program gives you the opportunity to serve with other volunteers and staff in full-time capacity, anytime throughout the year. We appreciate our long-term volunteers because they extend the work that we do and are a valued part of the Project Homecoming family. You’ll form lifelong friendships, learn new things, and spend each day helping others– an experience that you will not soon forget!
We promise that by the end of your time with us you’ll test your boundaries, challenge your perspective, and truly understand what it means to be a part of the New Orleans community!
Long-term volunteer service can be a springboard to other opportunities!
Many of our LTV’s choose to continue their service by joining Project Homecoming’s AmeriCorps team. Some have been able to utilize this program as an opportunity to move to New Orleans, and find paid work elsewhere while they volunteer with us. For others it is a meaningful way to spend the summer months between school semesters, fill the gap between jobs, or simply gain experience in the nonprofit sector.
For anyone who is considering traveling to New Orleans, Project Homecoming is unmatched in the benefits that we provide to our long-term volunteers. All we ask is that you bring your passion and commitment to making a difference in the lives of the people we serve!
