AIM: Advocacy & Involvement Months (AIM) is a new initiative that will cover different social issues each month through a variety of programming activities i.e. round-table discussions led by faculty and/or a community leader, volunteer opportunities, and movie nights. In order for this initiative to be successful we need advocates like you!
Volunteer Fair: Held each fall, this event features representatives from over 50 local community agencies and student service organizations. You can pickup information and learn the next steps for becoming a one-time or regular volunteer.
G-Force/Go Center: Mentor high school students through the college search and application process at local high schools.
College Student for a Day: Spend a day with a high school student shadowing you to experience a day in the life of a college student.
TCU LEAPS: One day a semester, come together as a campus to go out and serve the Fort Worth community.
Civil Rights Program: A collaboration with History and Political Science Departments and Inclusiveness and Intercultural Services. Students who take the course “The Civil Rights Movement in America” explore the history of the modern African American civil rights, current social movements and the role of advocacy, activism, and group-centered leadership. During Spring Break, students participate in a Civil Rights Tour, visiting key historical sites of the American Civil Rights Movement, and meeting with grass-roots leaders who have left a legacy of the movement in the United States.
MLK Day of Service: Initiated by Congress in 1994, King Day of Service is a national day of community service grounded in Dr. King’s teachings of nonviolence and social justice. Through a collaboration with campus departments and student organizations, we seek to provide service opportunities in Tarrant County for TCU students on Martin Luther King Jr. Day. Consider kicking off the new year with a day of service and resolving to serve throughout the year in the local community. Make it a day on, not a day off.
Service Spring Break: Whether traveling to a national or international destination, or staying right here in Fort Worth, this experience will help you identify and address community needs as you develop new TCU friendships. Past trips themes have included Homelessness, Housing Instability, State of Women & Girls and more!
Donation Station: Collaboration with Housing and Residential Life. Collection of gently used items donated TCU students as they leave the residence halls each Spring semester. All donations go to local community agencies. Volunteer shifts are typically 2-hour blocks during Spring finals week.
