HandsOn San Diego strengthens communities through volunteer action and leadership development.
HandsOn San Diego creates opportunities for people to volunteer 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 San Diego works with local nonprofits, schools and parks to identify group volunteer projects. These projects may be ongoing or one-time. We recruit volunteers and match each project with a trained Team Leader with the goal that everyone involved has a positive experience.
Hands On San Diego is an awesome organization. They provide an online calendar promoting volunteer events from their nonprofit partners.
They also understand the importance of volunteer management and that is why they have a team leader for each of the volunteer projects.
The team leader position is a great way to take volunteer service to the next level!

HandsOn SD is an online platform dedicated to connecting volunteers to meaningful projects around San Diego. We work hard to screen all projects to make sure they are impactful, and also recruit and train volunteer leaders to help manage projects for our Project Partners.
We wanted to make sure potential volunteers had correct information while reading other reviews: While HandsOn has a one-time registration fee in order to help us support and sustain our technology, it has always been waived for anyone who needed it. In our new registration system, we make it even easier to get the fee waived.
We openly discuss this on our site, and explain that those who are able to donate are also helping to sponsor others. We understand that everyone is in different places in life and we respect that for our volunteers. Thank you for letting us share and Happy Volunteering!
