Information for Volunteers
Who can volunteer?
Anyone can register as a volunteer for The BIG Event! All currently enrolled TAMU-CC students (both undergraduate and graduate), faculty, and staff are strongly encouraged to participate in The BIG Event. The more sign-ups we obtain, the more volunteer-sites we can help, and the stronger the Islander Impact we can make!
Why should you volunteer?
Participating in The BIG Event allows Islanders to contribute to a TAMU-CC tradition, while also making an Islander Impact. For The BIG Event 2018, TAMU-CC had almost 1,000 student volunteers participate at 62 different job-sites. All together, 3,768 hours were served that day. Each and every year, SVC strives to make the next BIG Event bigger and better than the one before. Volunteering at The BIG Event also allows students to connect to the community and interact with residents they wouldn't otherwise have had the chance to meet. All participants are also given a free T-Shirt and breakfast the morning of The BIG Event!
The deadline to register as a volunteer for The BIG Event is March 29th, 2019.
Information for possible Volunteer-sites
Who can be a volunteer-site?
The BIG Event serves both residents and nonprofits in the Corpus Christi community. To be a volunteer site, a volunteer-site registration form needs to be filled out and submitted on I-Engage. The link to the form can be found below. This form provides us information about the tasks you need completed and number of volunteers you can accommodate. The BIG Event leadership team will review your request and schedule a volunteer-site check if you are signing up as a resident home. During the 2018 BIG Event, students served at 32 resident homes and at 30 non-profits, but there is no limit as to how many we will accept!
