Volunteer Expo - Career Center & Office of Student Volunteerism Friday, Aug 26
(1 p.m. - 3 p.m.) Location: UT Dallas Activity Center Gym.

Join the UT Dallas Career Center & the Office of Student Volunteerism for the third annual Volunteer Expo! This event will be held during Welcome Week on Friday, August 26 from 1:00-3:00pm in the Activity Center Gym. The Volunteer Expo is an opportunity for students to window shop for volunteering opportunities all over Dallas!

Volunteering not only provides you the opportunity to help others and positively impact our communities, it allows you to explore your interests and goals, as well as learn valuable job skills. Of course, volunteering adds value to your resume, and it’s a great way to make friends and meet potential employers.

Volunteer opportunities exist on campus and in the community in a wide variety of areas, such as with sports, museums, events, and the environment. You could also work with children and youth, or volunteer with adults with disabilities or at an animal shelter. The possibilities are virtually endless.

Bring your CometCard for entry - if you forget it, we will have paper sign-in sheets available as an alternative.
