VolunTeaming is now offered under The Ritz-Carlton social responsibility program, Community Footprints
. Transcending traditional group activities, VolunTeaming combines teambuilding with volunteer activities that create lasting memories for the participants. Recognizing that many groups want their teambuilding time to make a meaningful contribution, these programs enable guests to be a force for good and feel personally connected to the place that they visit.St. Bernard Project
St. Bernard Project (SBP) is an award-winning rebuilding, nonprofit organization whose mission is to remove physical, mental and emotional barriers for vulnerable families, senior citizens and disabled residents who are struggling to recover from the devastation and trauma caused by the hurricane and the oil spill. With its innovative, vertically integrated construction system, SBP is poised to serve as a model for disaster rebuilding and affordable housing. With clients throughout the Greater New Orleans area, SBP reaches the communities most in need.
As participants journey by bus to the build site, they will receive an overview regarding their VolunTeaming effort. Homes are at all stages of the construction process, foundations, framing, to finish. They also have projects working to rehabilitate damaged homes. Assignments depend on what needs to get done that day, accomplishments by other groups from the day prior, and weather conditions.
Participants will receive safety equipment, tools to accomplish their assignments, a box lunch, and an assortment of beverages to keep hydrated throughout the day. We thank you for your contribution to the footprint of rebuilding one of America’s greatest treasures, New Orleans.
