Mission Statement


HandsOn Bay Area (HOBA) creates opportunities for people to volunteer, learn and lead in their communities. We strive to provide volunteers with a high-quality experience that fuels further action, and we envision a day when everyone is inspired and equipped to be the change they wish to see in the world.

Description


HOBA staff works with local nonprofits, schools and parks to identify high-impact, group-based volunteer projects. These projects may meet an ongoing need of an organization or its clients, or they may be one-time, large-scale transformations of facilities or green spaces. We recruit volunteers to get the job done and match each project with a trained Project Leader to ensure that both the community partner and the volunteers are satisfied with the work. Not only do we manage more than 80 direct-service projects a month, we offer educational programming to help volunteers become well-informed community leaders. HOBA’s book clubs, film screenings and leadership training allow community members to deepen their knowledge of community issues, develop personally and professionally and learn effective tools to create change. To accommodate busy schedules, we offer our programs on weekends and evenings, and through hoba.org, we give volunteers an easy way to sign up for projects, track their service hours and learn about new opportunities. For corporate clients, we offer comprehensive planning services for employee volunteer events. We work with companies to further their corporate social responsibility goals by engaging their employees in hands-on service
