Hands@Work: Customized Service Projects


How It Works...

HandsOn New Orleans will plan a customized fee-for-service project based on your group size and volunteer interests. Your company picks the project focus, time and date—HandsOn takes care of the rest! 


With your partnership, HandsOn New Orleans will...


  • Develop a customized team-building service day that creates meaningful community change.
  • Provide much-needed supplies and materials for community improvements at local schools, community centers, public parks, green-spaces and urban gardens, just to name a few.
  • Provide all necessary tools and equipment, as well as water and safety gear for all volunteers.
  • Scout and recommend viable project sites based on your volunteering interest.
  • Provide trained team leaders to work with and coordinate your volunteer group.
  • Secure work site liability insurance for all volunteers at service project.
  • Make recommendations for local transportation and on-site meals, as requested.
  • Publicize your project through the HandsOn website, newsletter and social media.
