Volunteer Services Programs

Below is a brief description of the programs offered by Volunteer Services. For updates and information, please email vsuwt@uw.edu to be added to our listserv, or "like" our Facebook page.

- One Time Events

Volunteer Services partners with community organizations to provide six (6) service events per quarter. These events may be held on- or off-campus and are designed to be accessible for students with busy schedules. Each event is coordinated by the Volunteer Services Coordinator.

- Alternative Spring Breakaway Trip

Want to try something a little different? Forego your ordinary plans to vacation and join us for a trip that focuses on volunteering and giving back to the community. Two (2) breakaway trips are offered through UW Tacoma. These programs are created by two (2) student Spring Breakaway Coordinators.
