Who are we?
Helping Hands is a grassroots, youth-led organization dedicated to increasing youth community engagement in the Greater Toronto Hamilton Area (GTHA). We believe in the power of volunteering as a way to create lasting change for youth and the community as a whole.
What do we do? We connect youth with nonprofit organizations in their community through our app and in-person activities.
Helping Hands App
Our app has three main interconnected features: volunteer matching, experience tracking, and feedback work together to help youth find placements, reflect on their experiences, and continue skill-building.
We host workshops, provide mentoring services, incorporate youth into councils, conduct volunteer fairs, share stories as a pedagogical tool, and help student entrepreneurs start their own clubs and organizations. If it involves helping youth reach their full professional potential, we’re there!
Why should you donate?
Investing in better programs for youth directly translates into contributing to a better future. Your donation will go towards improving our app, building better workshops, and getting youth the resources they need to succeed. We aim to pay a liveable wage to young people involved
