Create lasting relationships while exploring the historic city of New Orleans and working on Gulf Coast relief. Help rebuild homes and schools, and work alongside local grassroots organizations as you become immersed in this culturally dynamic region. Participants will also travel around the Deep South, discovering landmarks of the Civil Rights movement and reinforcing the need for us to be instruments of change.

 
Spend two weeks with us in the South and become part of history. Bear witness to the real world problems and solutions facing our world and how we can create a better future together.
