About HandsOn NorCal

HandsOn NorCal is powered by HandsOn Connect, which provides a link for individuals, families, teams, and corporate groups to join together and engage in meaningful volunteer opportunities.

We strive to promote volunteerism and get people involved in their communities. HandsOn NorCal does this in partnership with other organizations so we are working together to bring about long-lasting change in our communities. From motivating children to discover and learn, serving hot meals to low-income families, to caring for the environment, to large scale transformational projects, Action Volunteer Network is responding to critical needs.

The HandsOn NorCal provides screened and supervised activities that serve to build capacity within nonprofits, schools, community groups, religious, civic, and government organizations. We're about empowering people to make a change. Join us…be part of the change!

We currently serve Butte, Glenn, Tehama, Shasta, Plumas, Lassen, Siskiyou, and Modoc Counties

Volunteering is a valuable part of every healthy community. Volunteers come from all segments of society and often provide essential services. Everyone has the potential to contribute strength and resources in times of emergency. There are valuable and appropriate roles for unaffiliated spontaneous volunteers in mitigation, preparedness, response, and recovery.
