HandsOn Kansas State

HandsOn Kansas State promotes civic learning and leadership through meaningful volunteer and service opportunities between campus and community. HandsOn strives to develop socially responsible citizens knowledgeably equipped for active participation.

Annually, HandsOn creates and implements specific Days of Service to heighten civic awareness. Each semester, HandsOn K-State hosts mobile food distribution in conjunction with Harvester's of Topeka. Each mobile food distribution provides over 8,000 pounds of fresh produce to an average of 180 households. Our Martin Luther King, Jr. Day of Service is held once a year and mobilizes over 100 volunteers at anywhere from 10-20 sites in the Manhattan community.Seasonal volunteer opportunites include raking for senior citizens, Fake Patty's Day Clean-Up and Furniture Amnesty Day.

As the resource center for all service minded people, HandsOn K-State Student Program Coordinators are available to sit down one-on-one to discuss interests, assist in finding organization contacts, and any other service-learning training needed to establish your volunteer opportunity. Student groups looking to participate in volunteer projects can contact handson@ksu.edu for more information. 

Interested in joining the team as a student coordinator? Applications will be released after spring break of 2019. Please contact Idhamner@ksu.edu or kirkin@ksu.edu for more details.
