Get Involved with a Community Partner on the ENGAGED Platform as a Volunteer

At UT Health San Antonio, making a difference in the community is now easier than ever, thanks to their new community engagement platform called ENGAGED. This platform allows students, faculty, staff and community partners to volunteer effortlessly and track their hours with ease.

With over 10,000 members already able to access the portal, finding a community partner that aligns with your interests has never been simpler. For instance, those passionate about personal health may be drawn to Work Out Help Out (WOHO), a nonprofit organization that promotes volunteering, healthy living and offers fun weekend events involving exercise, service and nutrition.

Volunteering through ENGAGED is free of charge and the university records the hours you spend volunteering through their platform which helps them fulfill their mission of community engagement. To get started, simply visit the ENGAGED website and click on ‘Community Partners’ to view the list of organizations associated with UT Health San Antonio. From there you can select an organization to view upcoming events and volunteer opportunities and then record your hours through the platform.

It’s also encouraged for volunteers to wear a UT Health San Antonio T-shirt while volunteering to show pride in the institution. If you have any questions or want more information about volunteering through ENGAGED or how it works, don’t hesitate to contact ENGAGED project administrator Cindi Adcock at [AdcockC@uthscsa.edu](mailto:AdcockC@uthscsa.edu).
