What is Outreach Tulane and why should you participate?

Eventbrite - Outreach Tulane 2013

Outreach Tulane 2013 will be on August 31st!!

Outreach Tulane est. 1990

Outreach Tulane is Tulane University’s largest and oldest community service event (this is our 23nd year!). This event is held annually to commemorate the anniversary of Hurricane Katrina and to act as an open house for service. We host over 1,000 volunteers throughout the greater New Orleans area to give student a chance to get to know the place we call home – this year we will be specifically focusing on the Central City region of New Orleans.

The theme is “Neighbor Helping Neighbor, Give NOLA Love”. This year we are celebrating our progress and the resiliency and spirit of the city because we’re proud to call it home. People continue to come from across the entire country to serve in New Orleans; we’re lucky enough to be right in the heart of it.

There are countless reasons to join in on the fun. Among them are:

  • Meet new people. It’s a fantastic way to make a bunch of new friends, and/or reconnect with old ones.
  • Discover New Orleans. Tulane is a great place to go to school in large part because of the unique city that surrounds it. There is no place like New Orleans! Outreach is a perfect chance to explore the city, get to know the local people, and discover cool spots to visit.
  • Explore public service opportunities. Whether it’s for a service-learning class or simply because you want to give back – you will get involved in public service- it is part of the Tulane Experience. Outreach is your first taste of experiences to come. Whether it is beautifying schools and neighborhoods, tutoring school children, building homes, landscaping, serving the elderly, feeding the homeless, or being “green”, there is something for everyone.
  • Get involved. If you are interested in starting or leading a community service event this is a must-have experience!

For The Love of New Orleans. Period.
