Families / Community Groups
Hands On Orlando offers individuals, families, community groups, non-profit clubs and faith/philosophy groups access to its calendar-based volunteer projects.
Volunteer Opportunities Can Be Hard To Find
Hands On Orlando breaks down barriers to engagement. People are not required to make long-term time commitments. Our average project lasts three hours, yet may cause a multi-year positive impact.
There is a minimum age of participation for each project, based upon factors like tasks involved, complexity and safety.
Hands On Orlando volunteers also learn about community issues, meet like-minded people and address social issues important to them. No projects involve administrative work, walks/runs, fundraising, politics or religion advocacy.
Unlike other non-profit organizations that seek to utilize volunteers, HOO supports volunteers. Hands On Orlando is a project creator, planner and manager and leader and not a referral service.
Approximately two-thirds of the people who volunteer on HOO projects are adults. HOO does not assist charities that won't allow youth under age 18 to volunteer. (FAQ)
