Howard University > Alternative Spring Break 2012
While in New Orleans
More than 100 students from Howard University are in New Orleans during their spring break to participate in restoration projects, landscaping jobs, tutoring and to work with the city’s Public Defender’s Office as they help rebuild the lives and communities affected by Hurricane Katrina.

Volunteers will tutor third and forth grade students at the Fannie C. Williams Elementary School, which is preparing to become a charter school. Tutors will concentrate on math and language arts in preparation for the Louisiana Educational Assessment Program (LEAP), the state’s assessment tests. The volunteers will also introduce the students to various colleges and universities.

Other volunteers will work at the Lower Ninth Ward Village, where they will help restore the community center. About 50 students from the Howard University School of Law will tutor students and work with the Public Defender’s Office, which has a large case backlog.
