UTSA Day of Service

UTSA Day of Service is an annual tradition and a volunteer opportunity for UTSA to come together as a community and give back to our San Antonio city. It is the largest service event of the year with 600-800 volunteers and approximately 20-25 community partners. Projects have included community gardens, painting youth centers, landscaping, and other arts and crafts projects. The event also serves as UTSA’s contribution to The University of Texas System’s United to Serve volunteer initiative, challenging each campus in the system to develop a unique service activity.
