Join us this Thursday April 17 at Mellow Mushroom in Adam's Morgan for chance to get together for a great cause and enjoy great exclusive drink specials! While there, we'll unveil our new website to the public and, best of all, $10 wristbands will be sold for extended happy hour specials! Don't miss out!

The sun was out and Hands on DC volunteers got an early glimpse of spring on Saturday, March 8 during our first Work-a-thon of 2014! More importantly, volunteers made a huge impact at Jefferson Middle School, Walker Jones Education Campus, and Capitol Hill Montessori. We’d like to thank the all the great teams and individuals who came out to support us! Learning doesn’t stop outside the classroom. Volunteers, our hats are off to you for completing 13 educational murals, 2 school spirit murals and 19 other improvement projects!

Special thanks to our 2013 Platinum and Gold Sponsors! If you are interested in becoming a sponsor, please visit our page.

Our Partner

We are excited to announce a new partnership with Urban Alliance, a local non-profit that prepares youth from under-resourced areas for the world of work

and a life of self-sufficiency, through meaningful paid internships, training, case management, and mentoring. Hands on DC will fund and distribute scholarships to support Urban Alliance Interns from DC public schools as they transition to college.


You can help us meet our 2013-2014 fundraising goal!

All donations are tax-deductible

Donations from corporations, foundations, small businesses and individuals make Hands on DC possible. These contributions pay for the supplies our volunteers use and provide the scholarship money local students need.
