Nominate a Project - Shreveport Shotguns Selected
Know of a significant historic building or site that needs preservation, stabilization or restoration? Help save it by nominating it for an AiP project.
Norla Preservation Project did! and AiP now has plans underway for a project in Shreveport. Six historic shotgun houses set for demolition will instead become part of downtown revitalization efforts. Norla’s mission is to re-purpose historic buildings and prove that demolition isn’t the only choice for downtown improvement.

We're Looking for a Few Good Board Members
AiP has recently embarked on an ambitious plan to grow the organization and enhance our effectiveness. With 36 projects in 7 countries under our belt, we know there is a lot more we can be doing to safeguard cultural heritage, foster community sustainability and provide amazing travel experiences. But we can’t do it alone. We need a few more people on our Board of Directors working to fulfill our potential. So if you’ve got the travel bug, or love old buildings, or are a proven fundraiser, or want to get involved for any other reason, contact Judith. We’d love to have you “on board”!
What is a 'Jammer' Anyway?
We needed a special term for the people who travel with AiP to explore and help restore the world's cultural heritage, becasue they are so much more than volunteers or participants. To make a long story short, "jammers" comes from jam, as in strawberry and other fruit preserves, conserves and compotes, and the way a group of people comes together to create something new and wonderful.
Meeting fellow jammers is one of the great reasons to take an adventure in preservation. Find one that's perfect for you and get ready to jam.
Fundraise for Your Trip
Crowdfunding is a great way to underwrite your adventure in preservation. Money raised via platforms such as Volunteer Forever can be used for your project fee, your travel expenses, even a donation to to AiP to support the project you'll be working on. You can find more fundraising tips here on our website.
