A Serious Investment In Your Mission.

Partnering with Serve Louisiana is a proven way to build a more efficient nonprofit, public school, grassroots effort or community initiative, giving your organization greater capacity to improve the lives of those you serve. Our emerging leaders are smart, talented and ready for an 11-month challenge in the Baton Rouge, Lafayette and New Orleans areas. And we pair them with partners who are focused on overcoming the challenges of poverty, mental health and wellness, youth development and environmental protection across South Louisiana.

Working full-time with you, our members make a difference through capacity-building activities that improve your operations; broaden your scope of services; and/or grow your leveraged resources such as volunteers and community partnerships. Our goal is to generate benefits that last well beyond the member’s service term by providing the structure and support your team needs to deliver direct service to those who need it.

Partner Commitment

  • Provide a meaningful corps member service experience for 11 months, from September 1st through July 31st.
  • Make a $16,000 cash match in return for a full-time (40+ hour a week) commitment from one of our emerging leaders. Your investment helps us provide a living allowance, health insurance, paid days off and other competitive benefits.
  • Welcome the Serve Louisiana member to your team as a Volunteer Coordinator, Technology & Social Media Coordinator, Program Outreach & Community Awareness Coordinator or Program Development Coordinator. We partner with organizations that can demonstrate the value of these positions (or elements of more than one) to their goals and strategies.
