Why Volunteer

Volunteering done differently

At All Hands and Hearts, we believe that every individual should have the chance to volunteer through our free and open-door approach. We believe in giving back without limitations. Whether you are 18 or 80, worked your whole life in construction or have never touched a power tool, you are always welcome. We believe in the strength of diversity. And no matter your race, religion, national origin, disability, sex, gender identity, sexual orientation or age, we believe that together, we can make a difference.
Got questions? We’ve got answers. Check out our Volunteer FAQs.

Three great reasons

1
Get involved in helping communities recover after a natural disaster. If you have spare time and a willingness to help, you can make a difference in bringing individuals and families return back to their homes and classrooms after the disaster.
2
Immerse yourself in a multicultural and multi-generational community. Whether you’re in the dorm room or the board room, leadership begins with service. During your time as a volunteer, you will meet volunteers from all over the world – from all different cultures, ages and backgrounds!
3
Learn new skills. As a volunteer, you will work alongside your team, learning valuable construction skills. By the end of your time on program, you’ll be able to return home having learned something new.

In the wake of any natural disaster, it’s volunteers like you who shine a bright light for the affected communities. We can’t do what we do without volunteers like you, so don’t miss out on the opportunity to join us on a program today!

Program: Nepal Relief - Earthquake Recovery

Dan volunteered on our Nepal program, rebuilding earthquake resilient schools for over 4 months. "Since I've been here, I've learned so much. I came here with some construction knowledge and I've been lucky enough to be able to teach some people what I know but also learned a ton - both from other volunteers and our local skilled masons."
