Dancing with Hope

Dancing with Hope is a documentary made over the course of one of our 2016 trips. It highlights the student’s experience as they build homes in New Orleans and shares the story of some of NOLA’s residents. You can view the whole documentary here.

A Snapshot of our time in NOLA

Over the course of our week in New Orleans trip participants will spend their days on a work site, contributing directly to the ongoing efforts to restore the community. But the experience of the trip goes further than that. The trip participants are also exposed to the lively New Orleans culture and its rich history in all activities. You can view a sample of a typical itinerary here. If you want to see what some of our more recent trips have looked like, visit our Images & Video Page!
