BATON ROUGE - The World Changers are in Baton Rouge this week to fix up the homes of the needy and elderly. Mayor Kip Holden is holding a press conference this morning at 10:00 a.m. to introduce the student volunteers to the community.

World Changers is faith-based group that includes students from around the country. The group plans to immerse itself in the city, learning about the history and culture, all while providing selfless service.

The mayor's Assistant Chief Administrator, Gail Grover, sat down with Whitney Vann on 2une In this morning to tell you what the World Changers plan to do in their 11th visit to Baton Rouge.

"We have about 180 student volunteers who started to arrive yesterday," Grover explained. "They immediately started working in the community and will continue working through Friday."
