International Volunteer Information
lowernine.org Welcomes International Volunteers!
Recently we’ve had an influx of international volunteers. While we find this exciting, we want to make sure that your time with us down here in the Lower Ninth Ward is productive for both you and for us.
We here at lowernine.org need you to know a few things before you plan to come to Louisiana and volunteer with us.
English language competency – You must be at an intermediate conversational, as well as intermediate listening English level to volunteer with Lower Nine. It wouldn’t be a bad idea to learn the names of tools or construction terms as well as you will need to learn these on the work site.
You must abide by all the house rules that all our volunteers adhere to (these will be sent to you in an email after you’ve applied).
