handson bay area volunteersPeople helping peopleTM

We connect companies and people with high-quality volunteer projects through our extensive network of local nonprofits and schools in need.

We help companies — including Google, Salesforce, Levi’s and many others — create customized volunteer events to make their employees happier and better serve society.

And we offer volunteer projects each month to anyone who wants to help, covering all the causes people care about.


Our Impact

In 2019, we mobilized over 28,000 volunteers, resulting in more than 82,000 hours of service to more than 350 schools, parks and nonprofits across the Bay Area. Our volunteering projects meet critical community needs including education and literacy, youth development, health and aging, homelessness, the environment and more.
