Custom volunteer events for your team

HandsOn Bay Area specializes in the creation of custom in-person volunteer events and programs, connecting your company’s employees directly with schools, parks, and nonprofits in need of your help. With the prevalence of virtual opportunities, there’s nothing quite like the tangible impact of on-the-ground volunteering. Located in various places around the Bay Area our volunteer projects allow your employees to interact directly with the communities they serve. These shared, HandsOn experiences not only help to foster a sense of camaraderie among employees but also serve to mobilize them towards the greater good.
