HandsOn Network partners with nonprofit and government agencies to provide compelling volunteer opportunities and to effectively utilize the talents of people who serve. As the country's leading volunteer organization, HandsOn offers training, resources, and networking opportunities that equip agencies to engage volunteers in meaningful service.
