Texas Tech University

Volunteering

An important aspect of an applicant's resume and application is their volunteer experience. Health professions schools and programs review many applications each year and altruistic contributions to society are an important factor in the application process. Volunteering your time not only can help your application stand out from the others, but it can also teach valuable life skills that help in any profession or career.

It is common for students to give back in their communities in their roles as members of student organizations, but whether you go that route or additional service is a goal of yours, there are many places in the Lubbock area where students can volunteer.

Below are some organizations that provide volunteer opportunities to Texas Tech University students.
