Get Involved



The easiest way to get involved is to participate in the local events that the GICDT sponsors on Grand Isle. You can also subscribe to the Island Beacon to get all the information about what is happening on the island.  

The Beacon isn't being published now. We hope to have it back in circulation soon. 



Do you have a project or event that you would like to see on Grand Isle?  Let us know how we can help you make it happen.  We work with may Community Groups and individuals to host events that support Grand Isle, Louisiana.



Volunteers are welcome at anytime.  Email us with the times that you are available and/or the projects that interest you.  Your participation is always welcome and greatly appreciated.
