global community engagement


Global community


The Office of Student Conduct and Community Engagement is a one-stop shop for information on volunteer opportunity in Laredo-Webb and around the WORLD—not just for students but for the entire university community, including faculty and staff.

These are just a few suggestions of outside organization if you are looking for global service opportunities. Texas A&M International University neither endorses nor sponsors any of the organizations listed below. Volunteers enroll and participate at their own accord.

Love Volunteers
 is a travel organization, working in 27 developing countries to provide international support to local NGOs. We work directly with local teams to help develop their organizational models and supply volunteers who can help with everything from teaching English to administrative tasks or undertaking field research. We strive to offer volunteers extremely competitive program fees on a non-profit basis as we recognize the real value is having volunteers help local people at a grassroots level, rather than charging high fees that often never reach the local community. We have local coordinators in each country that we work with to help volunteers find opportunities that complement their goals. Visit the organization website for more information.

OXFAM America is a global organization working to right the wrongs of poverty, hunger, and injustice. As one of the 17 members of the International Oxfam confederation, Oxfam work with people in more than 90 countries to create lasting solutions. For more information, please go to the website or email (info@oxfamamerica.org) the organization.
