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 the 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.

Passion for community service and empowering others to give back
Desire to develop your leadership skills
