Join Hands Day is a multi-generational volunteer opportunity that allows UCT members to work side-by-side with children and teens in their communities. Each year, Join Hands Day brings together youth and adults to create and coordinate joint community service projects. UCT local councils across the U.S. and Canada have been making a difference in their communities by participating in this event for more than 15 years.
Youth and adults work together to plan, organize and implement their Join Hands Day community projects. Planning and implementing these projects helps build relationships across generations and creates a sense of community.
Join Hands Day projects can be held any time during the year. Typical projects include coordinating local festivals, cleaning and sprucing up local parks, highways and nursing homes, supporting individuals with intellectual disabilities, volunteering at food banks and homeless shelters, and brightening the lives of seniors and veterans.
