Common Ground Relief is run by a staff of long-term volunteer coordinators, based in the Lower 9th Ward of New Orleans. Each coordinator focuses on a specific project area and facilitates the work of the thousands of short-term volunteers from all walks of life who have come to work with us since 2005.
We are looking for skilled individuals, both short and long term, to come and volunteer with us in the Lower 9th Ward. We are particularly looking for those with expertise in one of our project areas. If you have experience in construction, dry wall hanging, carpentry, painting, roofing, plumbing, electric work, legal aid, environmental science, media/PR, computer technology, education or any other field that you think may be helpful to our work, please let us know!
Volunteers must be willing to multi-task.
