Project Description: The GO! NOLA team partners with community organizations involved with ongoing rebuilding and relief efforts in neighborhoods affected by Hurricane Katrina.  They will help to paint, fix up, and refurbish homes in the area and learn about housing as it relates to human rights. The students explore how the effects of Katrina have changed and shaped the city and how the community has responded to issues of injustice.  They meet with a Katrina storyteller, participate in a contextualized driving tour of the city and speak with community organizers about justice, race, power and community resilience.  The students also have the opportunity to explore the unique NOLA culture and get to know the city in fun and interesting ways through local museums, food, music and history.

Estimated Cost:

$800
