Be A Leader
Project Leaders are trained volunteers who lead Hands On Orlando's calendar-based projects across Orlando and Central Florida.
Gain leadership, management, delegating, public speaking and risk management skills. Maximize and leverage your time and passion to help others.
Project Leader Profile
PLs are responsible, reliable, trustworthy, flexible, fun, creative, caring and typically outgoing. Most PLs are adults. However, outstanding youth, age 16+ will be considered.
A Project Leader dedicates approximately 60 minutes more than a volunteer would during a project. Most projects last three hours. Some Project Leaders have been with HOO for more than 10 years. Yes, the opportunity is that awesome!
Calendar projects range in size from five to 55 volunteers. The average is 20-25 people.
PLs also have the opportunity to lead important tasks during Hands On Orlando-managed corporate projects!
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 leads a 50 person project. A volunteer would need to engage once a week for nearly a year to have the same positive impact as the PL!
