Collaborating with various environmentally focused NGO partners, you, your friends, collegues, and family will have a lot of options to get engaged and to take individual actions!

Chenguang Cerebral Palsy Rehabilitation Center
A special thank you to the volunteers from Treasury Wine Estates (TWE), who joined us yesterday at the Huangpu and Hongmei Welfare Centers.
With Dragon Boat Festival is around the corner, volunteers made scented pouch (called “Hsiang Bao”), a traditional custom for this day. A pouch filled with herbal medicines, it is thought to protect people from illness, but more than that, through this activity the volunteers found it a great medium to connect with some elder mentors who helped them through the process.
River Watching 2018
Are you looking for an opportunity to protect our environment?
With one of our key focus areas over the last 6 years being to help support Shanghai’s environmental protection, we are happy to announce a new program partnership focused river protection area.
In partnership with the River Watcher, we will recruit 14+ teams of River Watcher, and we would like for you to join us and keep eyes on the 14 main rivers.
In the coming March, HoS will start to recruit volunteer teams for this program.
On Dec 23rd , the fifth UPS Road Code ceremony was held in Shanghai. The event got support from both HandsOn Shanghai, UPS China team, and what is more important, university partners who have devoted themselves into the social change.
On Sep 19th, HandsOn Shanghai held its second CSR roundtable to discuss how the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) could be leveraged to drive employee volunteering strategies and programs.
Richard Brubaker, HandsOn Shanghai’s Founder and Executive Volunteer, started the session by asking attendees to raise their hand if they had previously heard of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). However, even though the attendees were all experienced CSR professionals, not one hand was raised.
A big thank you to the nearly 200 Google employees who have, over the course of the last month, donated their time to those in need.
Over the course of this time, they served with seven of our partners in Beijing and Shanghai to engage with migrant and autistic children and the elderly in fun and engaging ways.
Our partners, in Beijing and Shanghai, all greatly appreciate the time that you have spent with them, and we thank you for your service to the community.
Be the Change! Volunteer!
