Solving New Orleans drainage issues one young adult at a time.


New Orleans Stormwater Training Corps is a collaboration between Louisiana Green Corp, Home by Hand & Greenman Dan Inc.

We train unemployed young adults to install and maintain affordable stormwater management systems such as French drains and rain gardens on residential and commercial properties to help address flooding in the Greater New Orleans area.


Does your street or yard flood? Are you looking for an inexpensive and functional way to address flooding as well as beautify your property? We can Help!

You can be a part of the solution.

New Orleans has the third-highest rate of young adults who aren’t connected to school or work. You can help to address the city’s drainage issues while also teaching awareness and training young adults and creating jobs in the burgeoning Green Infrastructure field.


Students are trained and supervised by a licensed stormwater management professional.

This innovative training model allows us to deliver these interventions at a fraction of the cost.
