Make a Difference is the largest single-day of volunteering in the country. On the fourth Saturday of October, millions of volunteers around the world unite in a common mission to improve the lives of others. Make A Difference Day is a day to celebrate the power of people to make a difference.
In 2010, Texas A&M International University established its first Make a Difference event. Over 150 students gathered to serve the Laredo-Webb community to make a difference. Today, Make a Difference is a TAMIU student tradition. To learn more about our past service projects, click on the link below.
The Big Event is the largest one-day service project led by TAMIU students. Every spring, over 350 students come together to show their appreciation to the Laredo community by completing services projects such as painting, yard work, and trash pick up in a compressed four-hour service schedule.
Volunteer registration for The Big Event 2019 is now open! 2019 is a historic year for The Big Event at TAMIU, as it will mark our 10 Year Anniversary. This year's partner is Ruthe B. Cowl Rehabiliation Center.
In 2009, students at Texas A&M International University participated in this great service initiative. Since then, students have adopted The Big Event as a student tradition.To learn more about our past service projects, click on the link below.
