Partnering with Hands On Charlotte

Hands On Charlotte manages a volunteer-driven calendar of service projects. Our model relies on strong relationships with our volunteers, volunteer leaders and partner agencies.

We post opportunities with an educational, environmental, or economic opportunity (serving low-income neighbors) impact in the greater Charlotte area. We make exceptions for senior citizens and people with disabilities. 

We only post projects on the volunteer opportunity calendar after we recruit a trained volunteer leader.

We post projects that take place weeknights or weekends, for 5 to 15 volunteers for each project date at one specific site. Family friendly projects (for volunteers ages 6 to 17 with a parent) also recruit a lot of volunteers

Non-profit agencies must provide a copy of their 501(c)(3) letter to be eligible.

Here are the steps for posting on the opportunity calendar.

1. If you have a volunteer opportunity please email Doug Macomb to see if it's a good fit.

2. HOC will recruit and train a volunteer leader, this can take 1 to 6 months.

3. You will meet with Hands On Charlotte and the volunteer leader.

4. Project is posted on the opportunity calendar and volunteers sign up to help.

Volunteer opportunities that are not a good fit for the opportunity calendar are listed on the Bulletin Board. 

We look forward to working with you!
