Our worksite is in the 7th ward of New Orleans. We started building from the ground up, so the progress at the end of the day is impressive and really measurable. Here’s a quick tour: Tour Worksite
This year marks the fifth anniversary of Berklee’s Gracenotes Sponsorship to New Orleans. Thanks to the generous support of the college, the Gracenotes Volunteer Committee is able to send a group of staff and faculty members to New Orleans to contribute to the rebuilding efforts, which continue even today–six years after floods resulting from Hurricanes Katrina and Rita devastated the city.
I am delighted to join my colleague, Leigh McLaren, in leading this year’s team. We leave Boston on Monday, May 9 and will be on-site with New Orleans Area Habitat for Humanity from Tuesday, May 10 through Saturday, May 14. Over the course of next week, members of the team will post photos and more about our experience.
