Be A Leader
Project Leaders are Hands On Orlando volunteers who lead our calendar-based projects across Orlando and Central Florida. PLs come from all walks of life.
Project Leaders gain leadership, management, delegating, public speaking and risk management skills. They also maximize and leverage their time and passion to help others.
Project Leader Profile
Project Leaders are responsible, reliable, trustworthy, flexible, fun, creative, caring and outgoing. Most PLs are adults. However, outstanding youth, age 16+ will be considered.
Once a Project Leader is up to speed, she/he dedicates approximately 60 minutes more than a typical volunteer would during a project. Most projects last three hours.
Calendar project sizes average 20-25 people and range from five to approximately 50 people. Some are larger.
Training and Support
Project Leader orientation takes one hour. If you and HOO think PLing is a good fit, training is comprehensive and includes project shaddowing. PLs receive ongoing training and support.
Flex Your Power
Here's an example. One PL leading a 50 person project would need to volunteer once a week for nearly one year to have the same positive impact!
