About the Many Hands Project


The Many Hands Project is a student-driven renovation program executed by the Event Management and Construction Renovation Technicians at Niagara College. Each year, one local non-profit organization is chosen by the Many Hands Committee to undergo significant renovations, that will benefit the entire community. Together, the students plan and execute the entire process including: completing the desired renovations, involving the community through volunteer recruitment and raising awareness for the non-profit organization. With a $0 starting budget, it is critical to make important community partners and sponsors to help fund the initiative.  The Many Hands Project is proudly in its 20th year of supporting communities within the Niagara Region.
