Families / Community Groups / Schools
Hands On Orlando spends the time and money necessary to give families, groups and schools access to free volunteer projects. We believe it is that important!
Without Hands On Orlando, Volunteer Opprtunities Can Be Hard To Find
People call us regularly who can't find volunteer opportunities. That's because many charities don't want to engage youth or people who aren't willing to make long-term commitments.
Too often charities want people to stuff envelopes, supporter their fundraisers, answer the phone, participate in walks or runs, etc. Free labor.
Hands On Orlando takes a vastly different approach to volunteering. For starters, to make our projects possible and successful, HOO leads every project.
When you volunteer on Hands On Orlando projects, you will do meaningful work, learn about community issues and use your time, talent and passion to make the world a better place.
Our average project lasts for three hours, and no long-term commitment is required.
It is important for you to know that when you volunteer, you are NOT helping Hands On Orlando! Our work assists you and our monetary support comes from people like you.
You Can Join Calendar-Based Projects or Customized Projects
To engage, families, groups and schools should create (private) volunteer teams.
Managing a team is how parents and group leaders sign up themselves and others to our 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!
Besides calendar-based projects, Hands On Orlando can customized projects for your group. We have done it countless times.
Customized projects do not appear on our volunteer project calendar. These projects involve a budget and your funding helps cover project-related costs.
A customized project's cost is based upon several factors including group size, cost of supplies, length of project and our staff time commitment.
