Families / Community Groups / Teams

Hands On Orlando gives families, youth and community groups easy access to its calendar-based volunteer projects. Almost one-third of volunteers served by HOO are under age 18.

Companies should contact Hands On Orlando, at 407.740.8652 for a project proposal.

Volunteer Opportunities Can Be Hard To Find

Hands On Orlando breaks down barriers to engagement by actually serving volunteers. Many charities don't welcome volunteers who are under age 18 or those who can't make long-term commitments.

No HOO projects exclude youth. There is a minimum age of participation for each project, based upon factors like tasks involved, complexity and safety.

HOO manages 100% of its projects. This reduce the "train wreck" potential for volunteers and charities we help.


Volunteers who use Hands On Orlando learn about community issues, meet like-minded people and address social issues important to them. Projects do not involve administrative work, walks/runs, fundraising, politicals or religion advocacy.

Waiver of Liability

Project captains must ensure that members arrive at project sites with completed VIP waiver forms! The form can be accessed 24/7 on our About HOO page (download).

Team Compliance

If project attendance is below 85% a team's captain must delete their team. This action limits further harm to Hands On Orlando and to charities/schools it helps.
