Alternative Break trips are centered on social issues and are service-learning experiences. The trips allow students to connect with different communities while working to create positive, sustainable change.

We challenge you to get up and give back at this year's Trash Bash! Groups, families and individuals can volunteer. Just register on their website, select location 5 (Beach Street), let us know you are going and then meet up at 7 a.m. in the Student Engagement Suite.

Do you or your organization need service hours? Do you enjoy giving back to your community? The Office of Student Engagement has the perfect opportunity for you or a group!
As Earth Day approaches, we are inspired to give back. Earthfest is a half-day cleanup of the Tandy Hills 160-acre natural area, a BioBlitz to build ecological awareness and an evening festival to celebrate community and nature. All of this is less than 5 minutes away from campus.
This event is open to the entire Fort Worth community for both volunteering and the festival:
- 8 a.m.-Noon: Park Cleanup
- 2 p.m.-8 p.m. Festival
We are excited to have such a wonderful opportunity for the community to make a positive impact on the environment. Individuals interested in volunteering, please fill out this form.
Additionally, we have a limited number of vendor booths for those who have an interest in selling wares. Vendor booths are $50 and interested parties can indicate their interest in this form.
