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
