Our Service Projects

We have a variety of projects for you to choose from!

As our world faces the effects of climate change, organizations dedicated to promoting environmental sustainability becomes more and more crucial. The Environmental Sustainability project is perfect for those volunteers excited to support sustainable efforts.

 

Volunteer tasks widely vary from supporting recycling efforts to working in community gardens or urban farms removing invasive species, maintaining bioswales, or planting.

Environmental Sustainability

Different communities face unique issues and challenges. Through the Community Development project, you’ll gain a greater understanding of the communities you work with. It is ideal for those hard-working volunteers who want to support low-income communities in any way they can.  

 

Work is varied depending on location and community need but can include: working with a homeless shelter, community center, or urban garden, sorting donated household goods, helping organizations beautify their spaces, and more.

Community Development

Are you passionate about supporting our young people? The Youth Support project works to help those organizations dedicated to providing safe spaces that promote learning and development for disadvantaged children and teens.

 

Volunteer tasks can include helping schools, community centers or churches facilitate their programing, beautifying spaces, re-organizing classrooms, administrative support tasks, and more.

Youth Support

Many nonprofits are understaffed and under-resourced. They don’t just need hands-on support, they also need help with the day to day administrative duties so that they can focus on achieving their missions. The Administrative Support is ideal for volunteers who want to help build these organizations’ capacity.

 

Volunteer tasks will depend on the needs of the organization you are placed with but can include general administrative tasks, research, website development, fundraising, and more.

Administrative Support

The Construction and Renovation project is perfect for volunteers who are not afraid to get their hands dirty! It entails revitalizing communities through helping to construct or renovate homes and buildings to benefit those who live there.

 

Tasks include building, painting, landscaping, and other construction-related tasks. If you enjoy physical work, this is the project for you!

"Absolutely amazing project. I would definitely recommend! I definitely felt like I made a difference within the local community, my only complaint is I wish I could’ve stayed longer to volunteer more! The people at the volunteer projects and the local community were so grateful for our help and also our time. The accommodation hosts offered us great food and were always happy to provide for us! They were so lovely. Perfect hosts!"
