Life@50+ New Orleans
Volunteer Day

New Orleans Reimagined

In 2012, AARP introduced a large-scale voluntourism project to Life@50+. This was an extraordinary event allowing volunteers to enjoy all that New Orleans has to offer while sharing the experience of leaving a lasting legacy in this wonderful city.

On Thursday, Sept. 20, 2012, hundreds of AARP volunteers assembled in groups and were transported into neighborhoods of need in and around the Big Easy. Each neighborhood featured a variety of work opportunities – activities that supported the redevelopment of New Orleans: building, home refurbishing, landscaping, mentoring, green projects, construction of community gardens – the list goes on.

 

There was something for people of every ability – low impact to high impact activities – and at the end of our day, we left behind a positive and historic mark on the city of New Orleans and its residents. Available were full-day and half-day opportunities, and all supplies, transportation and project leadership were provided. Also available were indoor activities such as hunger programs, packaging supplies, mentoring, art projects and senior center activities.
