Lead

Inspire and engage others in meaningful volunteer service.

HandsOn Bay Area is committed to developing and training new community leaders. Our unique leadership opportunities allow you to expand and apply your skills in new and challenging ways - developing projects, building relationships and managing volunteers.

If you're a current HandsOn Bay Area volunteer who has attended three or more projects, you're eligible to apply to be a Project Leader (PL). PLs are:

  • ambassadors, building key relationships.

  • advocates, fueling further action by sharing the need for and impact of volunteer service.

  • and administrators, who report the impact made at each project.

Besides a warm, fuzzy feeling, PLs can expect these benefits from their volunteer service:

  • Plenty of flexibility.

  • A wide variety of nonprofit partners and perspectives to get to know.

  • A network of caring, passionate people in the Bay Area.

  • Support and resources from HandsOn Bay Area staff.

  • Opportunities to multiply your impact at trainings and special events.

Project Leader Training includes an online orientation and leading alongside an experienced PL Mentor. Active PLs commit to leading 4-6 yearly projects with us, either by "adopting" a project they lead on a regular basis, or by pinch-hitting for other leaders or at new projects.
