Hands On Orlando
Hands On Orlando helps you help others. We help solve community problems by inspiring, educating and empowering people to make a difference through volunteer action.
We identify, plan, manage and lead hands-on, community-based volunteer projects that you can join. It's hard work. We are not a referral service or "middle-man." Our calendar-based projects are free to join and open to the general public.
No projects benefit Hands On Orlando. They actually cost us time and money to produce.
HOO has assisted over 300 community organizations, served more than 200,000 people who have wanted to volunteer, helped hundreds of thousands of people and coordinated and led over 6000 projects.
Our projects typically last for three hours and can have a long-term impact upon volunteers and the community. No long-term commitment is required to get hands-on.
