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 do not accept drop-offs at HandsOn Miami office, drop-offs must be at the designated drop-off site or coordinated directly with HandsOn Miami staff.
  • Your completed DIY form must be submitted 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
