Are you passionate about addressing social justice and sustainability? If so, our service-minded AmeriCorps team needs your help! Climate change is here, increasing the size and frequency of natural disasters and displacing over 15 million people each year. Hurricanes like Ida, Harvey, Maria, and Katrina disproportionately affect under resourced communities, whose road to recovery often takes years. SBP is dedicated to shrinking the time between disaster and recovery, work that includes helping individual homeowners and communities rebuild after a disaster.

As an SBP AmeriCorps Disaster Corps Project Lead, you will embody SBP’s dedication to timely response, deploying to disaster-impacted communities following the immediate impact of natural disasters. When not on deployment, you will serve as Project Leads supporting recovery in your community, which looks like rebuilding the homes of disaster survivors, leading volunteers as they assist with your rebuilding efforts, and learning sustainable and energy efficient techniques that help homes better withstand future storms. No construction experience is necessary!

Why New Orleans?

Be steps away from the music, architecture, restaurants, and nightlife in one of the most iconic cities in the US by serving with us in New Orleans! You can bike through City Park or walk your dog on the trails in Audubon, all while enjoying jazz music and hot beignets. The culture of New Orleans is like no other in the US where communities come together to enjoy the Big Easy lifestyle. Serve for 10 months or stay forever as you fall in love and feed your passions in New Orleans.
