Opportunity Details

New Volunteer Leader Training

We aim to connect a Volunteer Leader to each of HandsOn San Diego's projects to ensure a successful, well-managed project. Volunteer Leaders are dedicated volunteers who combine their passion for a cause with their leadership skills. They manage volunteers at projects and act as a liaison between HandsOn San Diego and our project partners.

During the Volunteer Leader Training you will learn background information about HandsOn San Diego, the services we offer, and the role and best practices. At the end you'll also have the opportunity to be matched with a project that fits your schedule and interests. For a list of projects needing Volunteer Leaders, click here.

Volunteer Leaders are a vital part of our organization, we look forward to you joining our team here at HandsOn San Diego.
