Do It Yourself ("DIY") Volunteering provides a meaningful way to engage volunteers in a non-traditional way.

 

Every month, HandsOn Broward will offer a different DIY project. For these projects, you'll provide the supplies (all are designed to be low-to-no-cost) and we'll give you the instructions for completing it, along with information on the benefiting agency.
