Virtual Volunteering

While the coronavirus pandemic has transformed the nature of community service, there are still a number of ways you can give back to your community in a virtual or socially distanced setting.

Community Service Connection

The annual UHCL Community Service Connection gives you the opportunity to engage with local non-profit organizations and find out how you can volunteer. This would be a great opportunity if you’re seeking:

  • A service project for a class.
  • Service projects for a student organization.
  • Personal community engagement opportunities.
  • Ways to give back to the community.

Fall 2021 Date: TBA

The Big Event

One Big Day. One Big Thanks. One Big Event. The Big Event is the largest one-day, service project in the nation to simply say “thank you.” Through this annual community service opportunity, students, faculty, staff, alumni and community members show their appreciation to the community by completing service projects around the Clear Lake and Houston metropolitan area. The purpose of UHCL’s Big Event is to give participants opportunities to develop a heart for servant leadership. We hope you’ll join us at the next Big Event! 

Spring 2021 Date: Saturday, April 10th, 2021
