There are a number of organizations at Texas A&M geared towards on-going campus, community, or global service. However, if one-time or standalone service events are your preference, we’ve got those, too. Check out the spotlighted events below to find a worthwhile investment of your time.

If you can’t find the service opportunity you’re looking for, contact our Leadership and Service Center at (979) 845-4878.

AggieServe

Aggies serve. It’s what we do. AggieServe is an online resource established to bring students, non-profit organizations, and community agencies together for a common purpose: to serve the needs of Bryan/College Station community.

The opportunities listed on AggieServe are provided by our community partners and can range from youth mentoring organizations, senior citizen facilities, environmental groups, museums, community revitalization, cultural art endeavors, and everything between.

“Service” can mean different things to different people, so these definitions might help if you see them on the site.

Now, go forth and serve!
