Our Mission

Helping Hands is first and foremost about community. We are a community that believes in the power of volunteering to enrich our lives and the world around us. We are a service that brings youth and good causes together. We believe that our success can be seen in the relationships formed between nonprofits and volunteers. Our aim is to build a service that will overcome the barriers that keep volunteers and nonprofits from finding each other, working together, and developing strong relationships.We believe in the power of students. The belief that they have the power to give back and deserve opportunities to build their skills.

Getting Your Voice Heard

Over the past year, we have helped countless students and young people with their applications and to successfully join councils where their voices can be heard by government officials.

"Helping Hands helped me understand more exactly what MSAC is and what they expect in the application. Thus, I knew how to organize my essays and what to mention in my application."
—Le Nguyen, Minister's Student Advisory Council Member 2018-2019
