in conjunction with National Volunteer Week, United to Serve enables each UT
System institution to plan, partner with a non-profit organization, and
initiate a volunteer initiative based on their preference and the needs of
their community. The key is to organize projects that will allow students,
administrators, faculty and staff to serve their community, together, in the
greatest way possible.
This year, we will be hosting the United to Serve events on
Saturday, April 12, 2014 from 8 a.m. – 1 p.m. At this time, we are inviting the
university community to participate in the day’s activities. Confirmed activities
will take place at Ozanam Center, Community Development Corporation of
Brownsville, Alta Vista Nursing Home, Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA),
Brownsville Historical Association, Carlotta Petrina Museum, Spanish Meadows,
Ebony Lake, and the Brownsville Animal Shelter.
The Center for Civic Engagement in collaboration with the
Office of Student Engagement is organizing the campus’ United to Serve events. United to Serve is a UT
System wide volunteer initiative, initiated in 2004 by the University of Texas
System Student Advisory Council (UTSSAC), involving UT System students,
administrators, faculty and staff in an effort to engage and mobilize thousands
of volunteers in the fifteen-plus communities where we are located.
