HandsOn San Diego

HandsOn San Diego (HOSD) is a local volunteer center serving San Diego County. HOSD connects volunteers with nonprofit organizations, schools, and governmental agencies that need their support. Volunteers can easily filter their volunteer opportunity calendar for projects that fit their location, age, schedule, and interests.
Teens can volunteer individually, with their family, or with friends. Each opportunity lists the minimum age with or without an adult guardian. All hours served at projects on their calendar will be automatically tracked in the volunteer’s account. Teens can also record hours with outside organizations that can be used toward their President’s Volunteer Service Award when proper documentation is submitted.


Starting July 1, 2021, the San Diego Jewish Teen Initiative will be transitioning under the new direction of the Jewish Federation of San Diego County. If you have any questions regarding community partners, grants, or offerings, please reach out to Molly Okun, Donor Engagement Manager.
