The Volunteer and Service Learning Center is your connection to service through The University of Texas at Austin. Whether you are a Longhorn who wants to reach out to the community, or a community member or agency who wants to get involved with UT Austin, we have resources for you!
Volunteering is one of the most rewarding experiences you can give yourself while you are a student at UT. Austin is a city of incredibly active citizens, and Longhorns are no exception. Over 74% of UT students tell us that they volunteer over the course of a school year, and we’re here to help connect you to those opportunities!
Getting involved in volunteering and community service on campus:
THROUGH ONLINE RESOURCES:
Our online database for finding volunteer opportunities all over Austin. Search for opportunities by issue area, by date, or by zip code.
THROUGH YOUR STUDENT ORGANIZATION:
There are over 1000 student organizations on the UT campus! Most of them have some sort of service component, and will volunteer as a group or encourage their members to serve. If you want to help your group set up a service event and would like some ideas or some help, please contact us!
The VSLC also coordinates an AmeriCorps program to recruit AmeriCorps Volunteers in Service to America (VISTA)s. The UT VISTA program recruits recent college graduates to work in offices that need extra help expanding their programs and resources, or getting new programs off the ground.
The Volunteer and Service Learning Center is an office of the Division of Diversity and Community Engagement at The University of Texas at Austin.
