(Sept. 12, 2011) -- The UTSA Fall 2011 Volunteer Opportunities Fairs are a great way to get involved with community service and volunteerism on and off campus. This year's fairs are:

  • Main Campus: Wednesday, Sept. 14, 9 a.m.-1 p.m., University Center first-floor corridor
  • Downtown Campus: Thursday, Sept. 15, 11 a.m.-1 p.m., Frio Street Building commons

There are opportunities to work with children, the elderly, environment, homeless, among many others. You can speak with representatives from organizations such as Big Brothers Big Sisters, Camp CAMP, KLRN, Habitat for Humanity and UTSA VOICES, among dozens of other agencies and organizations. There will be door prizes given throughout the events. Whether you are looking for a one-time event, an ongoing opportunity or projects for large groups, there will be something for you at the volunteer fairs.

This year, "Roadrunners Give Back" is a new official UTSA Homecoming event. Alumni and students are invited to give back to the San Antonio community by sorting donations indoors at the San Antonio Food Bank from 1 to 4 p.m., Friday, Sept. 23. To help, a reservation is required. For more information and to register, visit the Roadrunners Give Back website.
