    The great thing about Hand On Atlanta is the variety of volunteer opportunities. I think people are afraid of getting over-committed, which prevents a lot of individuals from volunteering at all. Hands On Atlanta is a well-run, well-organized "one-stop shop". You can find some sort of volunteer effort for every kind of interest and timeframe. So go get involved!!

    Look no further for volunteer opportunities

    Hands on Atlanta is perfect for the person or group who has the desire to volunteer but needs a little direction. They have a fantastic website which allows you to sort through non-profit organizations in need of volunteers by date, time of day, area of the city or type of interest (such as working with the elderly, children, animals, the environment, etc.). Even if you join HOA, which requires you to attend a introductory meeting, etc. you can get lots of ideas about volunteering in Atlanta from working with them.

    You just can't help feel the satisfaction from knowing you help someone less fortunate. It's something good that you will remember for a lifetime.

    Hands On Atlanta is a great organization because there are a variety of volunteer positions available and an individual can volunteer for a day or for a longer period of time. The organization has a monthly newsletter that lists all of the volunteer opportunities by type and date.

    One of the best things about Hands On Atlanta is the volunteers you meet and the organizations, people, and issues you learn about while volunteering. There are few better ways to get involved and learn about the Atlanta community.

    ACFB is a great place to volunteer, individually or with a group. The new facility is amazing! Very organized and clean. The history of this organization is inspiring and the services it provides seem endless. You'd never expect ACFB to do so much!

    It's easy to browse and sign up for opportunities on their website. A good amount of information is given about the project and the sorting capabilities are handy. You can browse by county or by interest area and you can see a calendar also. Most activities I participated in were great.
