2023 Report

SERVE LOUISIANA is an AmeriCorps program that partners emerging leaders with non-profit and community-based organizations for a paid year, helping local organizations improve lives and build stronger communities.

Each year Serve Louisiana recruits a diverse corps of members that work to build the capacity of their organizations by expanding services, improving programs, and vitalizing communities. The goal is to improve lives through social justice initiatives, mental and physical health programs, education, youth development and environmental preservation. Serve Louisiana provides AmeriCorps Members with strong leadership development training, networking opportunities and personal and professional coaching.

Historical and present conditions demand bold actions. Healthy societies cannot grow from the unhealthy roots of historic and systemic racism, class oppression, gender discrimination, and other forms of domination. This report tells stories of how Serve Louisiana is supporting roots-level solutions by helping local organizations divest from these systems and invest in equity.

Taken together, these stories illustrate how Serve Louisiana is here to build a continually healthier, more sustainable and more equitable Louisiana for each new generation of children and families.
