The Tip the Block program provides a unique opportunity to connect residents with sustainable resources, with other organizations, and with one another. Tip the Block focuses on a specific 9 square block area. In this area, we are striving to create solid areas where Green Light New Orleans has installed energy efficient light bulbs while at the same time assessing any other additional need they may have (ie: vegetable garden, weatherization, water faucet retrofits, solar panels, etc). Tip the Block is meant to bolster action towards a much safer, healthier, and more environmentally sustainable community.
An intern will be needed to update data for our Tip the Block program and to coordinate the development of the program in the chosen neighborhoods. For more information on the responsibilities of this position, check out the following link:
