What is a Volunteer Leader?

Volunteer Leaders (aka VLs) play a BIG role in helping us manage our signature volunteer projects - from collaboration with our nonprofit partners, to volunteer sign-up support, to project management and follow-up. As our strongest link to the community, VLs ensure every volunteer has a great experience and that nonprofit's needs are being met.

In this hour and a half long training you will learn the basic skills needed to take on the leadership of a project as part of our core Volunteer Leader team. This training is a great way to find out if Hands On project leadership is right for you and to learn more about Hands On and the work that we do.


What is required to become a Volunteer Leader?

All Volunteer Leaders must be at least 16 years of age and must have already attended at least ONE OR TWO *Hands On* volunteer projects to attend the training.

Additionally, VLs should have:

  • Passion for community service and empowering others to give back

  • Desire to develop your leadership skills

  • Effective interpersonal skills - including strong communication skills, both in person and via email

  • Ability to track and log volunteer attendance records and project data
