About

We need you! We're looking for volunteers to document, realign, and clean headstones in Chalmette National Cemetery.

Through hands-on work, volunteers will learn how to properly document, realign, and clean headstones in Chalmette National Cemetery.

There are two time slots for each day: 9:00 a.m.-12:00 p.m. and 1:00 p.m.-4:00 p.m. Feel free to sign up for as many time slots as you’d like.

  • Minors must be 13 years or older to volunteer.
  • Those below 16 years of age must be accompanied by a parent/guardian at all times.
  • For youth groups, we ask that there be one adult supervisor for every five youth participants. Adult supervisors must actively volunteer with the youths and closely supervise them at all times.
  • An electronically signed release form is required from each volunteer before they begin any volunteer activity. (After submitting the form on the right, you will be directed to the online release form.)
  • Minors must have their application form electronically signed by their parent/guardian.
We would like to clean and re-align headstones in preparation for Memorial Day. To sign up for a shift, visit: https://savingplaces.org/chalmette-volunteers#.WNAmKW8rLcs
