New to Hands On? See our New Volunteer's Guide and learn how to get started!

This page is for individual volunteers who wish to volunteer without affiliation to a student group or corporate entity. Volunteers should see This Month's Calendar to view and sign up for current projects. Volunteers can also find out more about the different Hands On Programs

Our goal at Hands On is to encourage volunteerism and support our local partners. We work to meet the needs of Shanghai non-profits by providing flexible volunteer programs for busy professionals. While we love to see our volunteers come back, many of the programs for individual volunteers do not require you to commit beyond the few hours necessary for your selected project of interest.

Volunteers interested in committing on a long-term basis within an intensive program should check out Teamworks—a Hands On program that brings together committed volunteers in long-term and regularly scheduled volunteer projects.
