The Humana Rock ‘n’ Roll New Orleans Marathon, Half Marathon, 10K & 5K will take place on Sunday, March 4, 2018, and they are looking students to be a part their medical team for 2018. This is a great opportunity for high school students with any level of training to gain hands on experience and work alongside some of New Orleans finest medical providers. They are specifically looking for students who would be interested in joining the Medical Sweep team. These volunteers are not required to have direct patient care experience, as their main objective is to cheer on runners at the finish line and survey the area for participants who may be in need of medical assistance. If a participant is identified as needing assistance, the Sweep Team member can then point that person in the direction of the medical tent, escort the participant directly, or request assistance from the medical tent staff.

With the holiday season well underway, that means Mardi Gras is just around the corner! And, ArcGNO Mardi Gras Recycling Center is overflowing with beads. They would like to invite pre-freshmen, freshmen, and sophomores to volunteer with at the recycling center. This is a perfect opportunity for students to fulfill their service hours while helping a 64-year-old non-profit organization that supports people with intellectual and developmental disabilities, such as down syndrome and autism. The recycling center employs five full-time staff with disabilities and more than 75 Arc team members on a part-time basis. While their participants put in a lot effort and hard work, it’s volunteers who put them over the finish line, and this year, their goal is to sort 27 tons of Mardi Gras beads!

The Arc Mardi Gras Recycling Center is available to accommodate individual and groups of volunteers 7 days a week, all year long! For most volunteer shifts, students will work side-by-side with people with disabilities who are helped by our non-profit. We request that volunteers commit to at least a 2-3 hour block of volunteer time.

Individuals and groups may contact the Volunteer Coordinator, Norelia Reed, at (504) 324-1486 or at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it., to schedule a volunteer time. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact her.

The Arc of Greater New Orleans (ArcGNO) Mardi Gras Recycle Center is one of five social enterprises operated by ArcGNO. Arc is a 64-year-old non-profit organization that supports people with intellectual disabilities, such as Down syndrome and autism. During the weekday, their recycle center has three full-time employees on staff with disabilities and more than 75 Arc team members on a part-time basis. While participants put in a lot effort and hard work, it’s volunteers who put them over the finish line, and this year, their goal is to collect and sort 310,000 pounds of Mardi Gras beads.

For the 2017-2018 school year, they are opening the recycling center on the weekend with the hopes of encouraging area high school students to volunteer. This is a very casual volunteer site that offers the opportunity to meet new people and have fun, while at the same time helping a non-profit that relies heavily on volunteers throughout the year.

The Arc Mardi Gras Recycle Center will:
▪       Open on the second Saturday of each month for volunteers
▪       Open on the last Sunday of each month for volunteers
▪       Time for both dates will be from 10:00 a.m. – 2:00 p.m.

They ask that those who wish to volunteer to commit to doing a block of hours. Essentially, a student will only be committing to four days during a four month period. As of now, they will break up the year as such:
▪       Block 1:        September – December
▪       Block 2:        January – April
▪       Block 3:        May – August
