Families / Community Groups

Hands On Orlando gives families and community groups easy access to its calendar-based volunteer projects.

A group's leader starts the process by creating a free member account and a volunteer team.

Companies should contact Hands On Orlando, at 407.740.8652 for a project proposal. Here's more information about our corporate work.

Volunteer Opportunities Were Hard To Find, Before 1999

Many charities don't welcome volunteers who are under age 18 or those who won't make long-term commitments. No HOO projects exclude youth. Hands On Orlando breaks down barriers to engagement by serving volunteers.

Since 1999 HOO has managed 100% of its projects to reduce "train wreck" potential. There is a minimum age of participation for each project, based upon factors like tasks involved, complexity and safety.


Volunteers who use Hands On Orlando learn about community issues, meet like-minded people and develop their passion to help others. Projects do not involve administrative work, walks/runs, fundraising, politicals or religion.
