*Read below for next steps
Once you’ve found the project you’d like to serve with, click the Sign Up button at the bottom of the description. You’ll be prompted to log into your Hands On Atlanta account or you’ll create one. Creating your account is easy and it just takes a minute.
Note: If there’s no sign up button and it says Express Interest, that opportunity will need to approve you. The sign up steps are the same, but you won’t be officially registered to serve at that project until you receive an email notification, confirming you've been added.
SERVE + SIGN IN
Show up and serve on the date and time you selected! BE SURE TO SIGN IN at the volunteer site. Upon completion of your service, the nonprofit will report your hours served in our system.
VERIFY YOUR HOURS
After you’ve served and the nonprofit has reported your hours, you’ll be able to view your hours in your Hands On Atlanta account. Click here to view your hours and self report them in your volunteer profile. Once you have completed your service hours, Hands On Atlanta will prepare your letter of verification for the court system.
If you’d like to manually track your hours, print this verification form and have the nonprofit official verify your hours served on site at the end of the project. You can then scan and email the form to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Note: Hands On Atlanta is not able to verify any hours for projects that are not managed by us.
