Be A Leader

Project Leaders are Hands On Orlando volunteers who lead our calendar-based projects.


Project Leaders gain valuable leadership, management, delegating, public speaking and risk management skills and experiences as they leverage their time and passion to help others.

Hands On Orlando's calendar-based projects typically serve between five and 50 volunteers. Our projects, volunteers and Project Leaders are diverse.

Project Leaders communicate with volunteers before their projects takes place. They lead their projects from start to finish and report their results and observations back to HOO. 

Our training program is comprehensive and includes shadowing a Project Leader.

Project Leaders

Project Leader share important traits. They are responsible, reliable, trustworthy, flexible, creative and caring. Many are outgoing.

Most Project Leaders are adults. However, outstanding youth, age 16+ will be considered. 

Time Commitment

Generally, a Project Leader dedicates about 60 to 90 minutes more time than a typical volunteer would on a project. Project Leaders must be active to remain a PL. 

Flex Your Power

Project Leaders leverage their time and talents to maximize their impact. Here are two examples:

  • One volunteer can help a child learn to read. One Project Leader working with 20 volunteers can help 20 children learn to read, in the same amount of time!
  • One Project Leader who manages one food sorting project with 50 volunteers would need to volunteer every Saturday for almost one year to have the same impact!

Training and Support

Our Project Leader orientation session takes one hour. After that, you'll have a good understanding if this opportunity is suited for you.

Volunteers who become Project Leaders receive ongoing training and support.
