Each year nonprofits, community and faith based organizations, public schools, and government agencies compete in an application process to host Louisiana Delta Service Corps members. Starting September 1, 2017, Louisiana Delta Service Corps Members will serve full time for 11 months with Partner Organization to complete capacity building projects. Capacity building projects create positive outcomes for the served population that last beyond the corps member’s service term. In general, these activities do not include substantial direct service and do not solely support the regular administration of operation of the organization. Capacity building activities are designed to improve the efficiency and efficacy of an organization, to increase the scope of the program’s service, and/or to increase leveraged resources such as volunteers and community partnerships.
