​​​​Rebuilding Neighborhoods One School at a Time

Learn about our three summer service trips.

In 2007, a group of educators responded to the devastation left by Hurricane Katrina by assembling a team of volunteers to assist in the reopening of a public school. Since our first trip, we have grown to build connections with different schools all over the nation. PIES remains committed to serving populations residing in disadvantaged communities, in particular, those affected by natural causes.

Volunteers share their experiences.
