About

On September 6, Hurricane Irma slammed into the US Virgin Islands as a category 5 hurricane.The islands suffered severe wind and flood damage, reducing many areas to rubble. In light of the almost absolute devastation in the USVI, All Hands Volunteers sent an Immediate Response Team to St. Thomas. Less than a month later, the team was evacuated due to Hurricane Maria, which struck the islands on September 20 as a Category 4 storm. Today, we are back on the ground to finish what we started and our operations have expanded to both St. Thomas and St. John.

We don't require any construction experience to join us, and each site is supervised by a professional staff member or trained team leader that will teach you everything you need to know to have a fun, safe and positive experience. Volunteering with All Hands and Hearts is completely free, and we provide accommodation and meals to volunteers. If you can volunteer for two weeks or more, we can also provide a round-trip flight voucher from participating airports in the US to aid with the costs of travel.

Come with a positive attitude and a willingness to help, and we'll provide the rest!
