Community Outreach provides service opportunities in the Tampa Bay area and facilitates relationships between the PEACE Volunteer Center and local community partners. Three or more projects are planned each week during the fall and spring semesters.

Into the Streets

Students begin each fall semester by serving in the Tampa Bay community during the University’s annual day of service, the largest community outreach event that focuses on a variety of social issues including environmental stewardship and poverty. The event offers incoming first year students insight into the area’s community service needs, provides opportunities to get involved and inspires a new wave of UT students to find something about which they’re passionate.
