HandsOn Bay Area: Strengthen the Bay Area through Volunteer Action


name donors dollars

HandsOn Bay Area creates opportunities for people to volunteer, learn and lead in their communities. We strive to provide volunteers with a high-quality experience that fuels further action, and we envision a day when everyone is inspired and equipped to be the change they wish to see in the world.

HandsOn Bay Area works with local nonprofits, schools and parks to identify high-impact, group-based volunteer projects. We recruit volunteers to get the job done and match each project with a trained Project Leader to ensure that both the community partner and the volunteers are satisfied with the work.

Not only do we manage more than 80 direct-service projects a month, we offer educational programming to help volunteers become well-informed community leaders. HandsOn Bay Area's TeamWorks fuses volunteer service projects, community issue education and team-building activities to produce a unique, team-based service learning program. To accommodate busy schedules, we offer our programs on weekends and evenings, and we give volunteers an easy way to sign up for projects, track their service hours and learn about new opportunities through our Project Calendar.

For corporate clients, we offer comprehensive planning services for employee volunteer events through our Hands@Work program. We work with companies to further their corporate social responsibility goals by engaging their employees in hands-on service.
