During their Spring Break, a group of eight completed Hands On Nashville’s students Engage. Change. service-learning training! During the week participants explored needs within the community, practiced service project planning, and learned more about their leadership skills and one another.

During their week of Spring Break, motivated groups of students chose to spend their time serving their community through projects and service leadership training with Hands On Nashville. Students gave their time prepping meals at Nashville Food Project, gardening at Salvation Army, and sorting food at Second Harvest Food Bank of Middle Tennessee, medical supplies at Project C.U.R.E. and clothing at Goodwill!

Plus, Hands On Nashville guided a group of eight students through a four-day training course focused on leadership and empowering their peers to support and organize meaningful service opportunities.

With a total of eight projects and 80 students, Nashville’s youth worked together to impact their community, making for a successful hands-on Spring Break! What better way than to spend time off by helping others?

Here’s a look into some of the projects:
