About HandsOn Bay Area

HandsOn Bay Area creates awesome volunteer opportunities to connect cool companies and people like you to schools, parks and nonprofits that need your help.

Our Approach

HandsOn Bay Area staff works with local nonprofits, schools and parks to identify high-impact, group-based volunteer projects. These projects may meet an ongoing need of an organization or its clients, or they may be one-time, large-scale transformations of facilities or green spaces. 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.

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

Our Impact

We directly work with over 16,000 volunteers each year resulting in more than 55,000 hours of service to more than 240 schools, parks and nonprofits across the Bay Area. Our volunteer opportunities meet critical community needs including education and literacy, youth, HIV/AIDS, health and aging, homelessness and hunger, and the environment.

Our Network

HandsOn Bay Area is an affiliate of HandsOn Network, an alliance of innovative volunteer management organizations across the country and around the world.
