Hillel of Greater Toronto will be returning for the fifth time to help rebuild New Orleans because over two and a half years later, there is still a lot of work to be done. This will be a week trip (May 27- June 3) that will give students the opportunity to both help rebuild New Orleans and learn about many of the current issues that the city of New Orleans faces in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina.
The group will be working with Rebuilding Together a national housing reconstruction NGO. Cost of the trip is $700 which includes airfare, ground transportation, most meals, accommodation and administrative fees.
The application is available here.
Students who participated in past trips to New Orleans are strongly encouraged to apply.
The deadline to set up an interview is Thursday, May 8
