Participate in Project Serve

Project Serve participants walking towards their work site
Participating in Project Serve is an exciting opportunity to contribute to your community.

Participate in Project Serve on Saturday, September 14, 2019 and spend the day volunteering with a local community organization.

    • Get involved with a cause you care about or with a cause that relates to your field of study
    • Discover local organizations and learn more about challenges with the Victoria community
    • Meet like-minded people and expand your network

Project Serve is about more than just giving your time to an organization. Our goal is that all projects will benefit both you and the organization. The organization benefits by accomplishing a meaningful goal, while you benefit by developing new skills, learning about the organization’s role in our community and being exposed to new perspectives. This is known as the community service-learning approach.
