Our Community Project Focuses

We have a variety of projects for you to choose from!

Environmental Sustainability

As our world faces the effects of climate change, organizations dedicated to promoting environmental sustainability becomes more and more crucial. This project is perfect for those volunteers excited to support sustainable efforts.

Education

Are you passionate about supporting our young people? This project works to help those organizations dedicated to providing safe spaces that promote learning and development for disadvantaged children and teens. 

Housing & Homelessness*

This project is perfect for volunteers who are not afraid to get their hands dirty! It entails revitalizing communities through helping to construct or renovate homes and buildings to benefit those who live there. 

Neighborhood Revitalization

Through this project, you’ll gain a greater understanding of the communities you work with. It is ideal for those hard-working volunteers who want to support low-income communities in any way they can.  

Capacity Building

Many nonprofits are understaffed and under-resourced. They need help with everything from basic administrative help, research, fundraising, and more! This project is ideal for volunteers who want to help build these organizations’ capacity.

*The Housing and Homelessness project is only available in New Orleans & requires an additional weekly $50 donation to the community organization

"Absolutely amazing project. I would definitely recommend it! I definitely felt like I made a difference within the local community, my only complaint is I wish I could’ve stayed longer to volunteer more! The people at the volunteer projects and the local community were so grateful for our help and also our time. The accommodation hosts offered us great food and were always happy to provide for us! They were so lovely. Perfect hosts!"
