VolunteerUT is the entity that connects members of the UT community with direct service opportunities across central Texas. We hope to make volunteering easily accessible, whether as a one-time event or an ongoing commitment, through the following online tools:
- GivePulse is the primary platform used to connect UT students, faculty, and staff with local organizations in need of volunteers. By logging in with your EID, you can search for service opportunities under the “Events” tab. To learn more about GivePulse and all of its features, keep scrolling.
- @volunteer_ut Instagram account shares volunteer opportunities and is a quick, easy way for students to find a place to serve.
- Sign up to receive our weekly email that highlights volunteer opportunities around Austin!
VolunteerUT hosts the annual Volunteer Fair at the beginning of the school year, inviting dozens of organizations from the greater Austin area to campus to share volunteer opportunities with students. Additionally, we host annual days of service including our largest event, The Project.
The VolunteerUT team has created user guides to help students, faculty, staff, and our community partners learn how to use GivePulse. In addition to the guides below, we offer monthly trainings to faculty and nonprofits as well as by appointment for student groups.
