Be a Volunteer Leader

WHO can become a Volunteer Leader?
You can! Anyone with a passion for service and a desire to motivate others to give back to their community can become a volunteer leader. Like our volunteers, our volunteer leaders are all different ages with a wide variety of backgrounds and experiences, and they all bring something valuable to these projects.   
 
WHAT does a Volunteer Leader do?
Oversee attendance. Delegate tasks. Engage volunteers. Supervise. Set a good example. Answer questions. Inspire. Keep the volunteers coming back. Establish a sense of community. In short, our volunteer leaders serve as the link between HandsOn Greater Phoenix, our partner organizations, and our volunteers. 
 
WHY become a Volunteer Leader?
Not only do you get to be involved in unique, direct community service opportunities on a regular basis, but you also get the incredible opportunity to inspire others to do the same. Leading a Hands On project can also help YOU. Develop your leadership skills, meet new people, belong to a community, and don’t be afraid to put this on your résumé! 
 
WHERE can I sign up?
Contact Mallory Debus, Community Programs Manager, and let her know you’re interested. She will send you a Volunteer Leader application, and you can fill it out and email it right back!
 
WHEN do I start?
Once we review your application, we’ll contact you to let you know the date of our next Volunteer Leader Training. This is a one-hour training session held at the HandsOn office. At the end of the training, a HandsOn staff member will help match you with the perfect project, and you’ll leave ready to start a legacy of HandsOn leadership!
