We prefer volunteers to be 18 years of age and older. All volunteers under 18 must have a signed waiver from their parent or legal guardian and must be accompanied by a chaperon over the age of 18. Please email us to obtain this waiver.

Volunteers are supervised and accompanied by experienced crew chiefs or trained volunteers.
Q: Are you always looking for volunteers?
We use volunteers everyday with the exception of a few major holidays such as Christmas.
Q: Is New Orleans safe?
New Orleans is like any large city, stay in groups and be aware and you you'll be fine. The French Quarter, Downtown, and the Marigny are safe and where you would be spending most of your down time. At the work sites. the neighborhoods are typically sparsely populated and you are with a large group, we have never had a problem.
