Families / Community Groups / Schools
Hands On Orlando spends money and thousands of hours of staff time giving families, groups and schools access to free volunteer projects. We believe it is that important! We hope you do, too.
Volunteer Opportunities Can Be Hard To Find
People call us regularly who can't find volunteer opportunities. Many charities don't engage youth or people who won't make long-term commitments.
Beware! Too often charities want people to stuff envelopes, supporter fundraisers, answer the phone, walk or run, etc. Free labor! Hands On Orlando takes a vastly different approach. For starters, our projects are successful because we lead every project.
When you volunteer with HOO, you do meaningful work, learn about community issues and develop your talent and passion to make the world a better place.
Important. When you volunteer, you are NOT helping Hands On Orlando. We are helping you. Consider supporting us if you have the means.
Join Free Calendar-Based Projects
To get involved, families, groups and schools should create volunteer teams. Managing a team is how parents and group leaders sign up themselves and others to our free to join calendar-based projects. All projects fill on a first-come, first-served basis.
Children as young as age four (4) may participate in select projects. About one-third of the volunteers we serve are under age 18. All HOO calendar projects welcome youth!
Hands On Orlando also customized projects for a fee. Customized projects do not appear on our volunteer project calendar. A customized project's cost is based upon factors including group size, cost of supplies, length of project and our staff time commitment.
