Who We Are

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. Some of our activities include:

  • Creating and implementing Days of Service to heighten civic awareness.
  • Hosting mobile food distribution in conjunction with Harvester's of Topeka, where 8,000 pounds of fresh produce are distributed to an average of 180 households at each event.
  • Hosting annual Martin Luther King, Jr. Days of Service, mobilizing over 100 volunteers at anywhere from 10-20 sites in Manhattan.
  • Seasonal volunteer opportunities include raking for senior citizens, Fake Patty's Day Clean-Up and Furniture Amnesty Day.
Resource Center for K-Staters Wanting to Serve

HandsOn Kansas 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.
