Green Light New Orleans could not carry out its daily tasks, functions, and projects without the amazing help of AmeriCorps members and their service to our organization. Green Light New Orleans utilizes all three AmeriCorps programs. These include National Civilian Community Corps (NCCC), AmeriCorps State and National and the AmeriCorps VISTA programs.

AmeriCorps NCCC members are fundamental to Green Light New Orleans' community impact. AmeriCorps NCCC members have served thousands ofhours engaging New Orleans residents in necessary energy efficiency action and local sustainability. In 2010 alone, AmeriCorps NCCC members served 11,654 volunteer hours with our organization, time valued at $236,000.

Of the 300,000 free energy efficient light bulbs Green Light has installed for Greater New Orleans residents, over 70,000 were installed by AmeriCorps NCCC members, decreasing energy consumption by 29,000,000 kWh, reducing New Orleans carbon footprint by 32,000,000 lbs, and lowering residents' utility costs by $3.3 million.

AmeriCorps NCCC significantly multiplies our human capacity, which gives Green Light New Orleans, a staff of two, the ability to reach more than 14,000 local residents, to expand programming to area schools, and to impact often underserved communities on the outskirts of New Orleans. Our work is vital for New Orleans residents, and it would not be possible without the help of AmeriCorps NCCC.
