Are you ready to lead here and lead now? Completing an 11-month term with a Serve Louisiana partner will help a vital New Orleans- or Baton Rouge-based organization build its capacity to tackle the challenges of poverty, mental health and wellness, youth development and environmental protection. If you’re passionate about improving lives and building a healthier society, we want to hear from you.

The process to join Serve Louisiana involves three parties — the applicant (you), Serve Louisiana (us) and our partner organizations. Here’s how it works:

  • 1.


    Check out available positions, review position descriptions and learn about our partner organizations. Identify your top three picks.

  • 2.


    Next, complete your member application and motivational statements, then email them to us. Have your references submit their forms to us directly.

  • 3.

    Serve Louisiana Interview.

    Once we receive your application, we will schedule a video interview so we can get to know you better and you can get to know us better.

  • 4.


    After our interview, we submit your application to your top three picks. Partner organizations should reach out within five business days to schedule an interview with you.

  • 5.

    Partner Interviews.

    Next, you’ll interview directly with the partner organizations. Be sure to ask questions about what you could expect from a year of service with them.

  • 6.


    Lastly, partner organizations will offer positions to their top applicants. We want this to be a harmonious match that works for all parties, so we never pressure members to accept a specific offer.
