Hi, Martha -

As a college student, you should have access to a career center on your campus. These centers have counselors on staff that can assist you. You can also ask if there is an online system or other clearinghouse option for volunteer opportunities.

Depending on the advising model at your institution, your academic advisor in the advising center or your department (if a declared major) may have opportunities or suggestions based on companies that they partner with or have had prior students volunteer.

If you have exhausted your resources on campus, consider a national volunteer clearinghouse website such as https://www.volunteermatch.org/. The size of San Antonio allows for additional volunteer opportunities in city departments (http://www.sanantonio.gov/Commpa/Volunteer) as well as larger organizations like these: United Way (https://www.unitedwaysatx.org/volunteer/) and SA Food Bank (https://safoodbank.org/ways-to-help/give-time/).

I commend you on your interest and proactiveness! The best of luck to you in your endeavors!


Thank you so much for taking the time to answer my question. This is very helpful! Martha S.

Hello! I agree with Volunteermatch.org being a great resource for finding volunteer opportunities and also talking to your advisor or career counselors at your university.
