UTA Volunteers is a Leadership Center membership-based student group that plans and implements volunteer opportunities, social awareness programs, and civic engagement for UT Arlington students within the surrounding community. Its purpose is to promote active citizenship and strengthen our community by creating a role for students to become involved in, and provide tools and resources to, the UT Arlington community.
Membership is open to all current UT Arlington students, and application to the program is done at the beginning of each fall and spring semester. As a UT Arlington undergraduate or graduate student, you are welcome to apply in order to participate in UTA Volunteers programs and events.
Why should I volunteer?
Volunteering feels good! Volunteering is about giving back to the community, getting to know others, spending volunteering time with friends, sharing expertise to help with unique projects, gaining new experiences, and acquiring new skills. Volunteering is about building a close relationship with your community and offering your hands and mind to help others. Our community needs helping hands, and who better to do it than a Maverick!
