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

Every month, HandsOn Miami 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.

Important DIY drop off information:

  • We will only accept drop-offs at HandsOn Miami that have received prior approval on Tuesdays - Thursdays from 10 AM to 4 PM.
  • Your completed DIY report must be included with your project.
  • Please read all instructions carefully and be aware of the drop-off instructions & deadlines. *They may not be the same for every project.
  • If you have any questions or are having trouble getting the supplies needed to complete your project, email Cindy Ariza at
