Students Volunteering

Tommies Together Volunteer Center

The Tommies Together Volunteer Center provides students and graduates a range of co-curricular opportunities to volunteer their time in service to the community. Whether you want to participate in our annual Tommies Together Day of Service, or make your own volunteer commitment to a community partner, we can help you get started. 

Community Partners provide hundreds of opportunities for St. Thomas students to match their career path or personal interests, broaden their perspective, and become engaged in the work happening on the ground to create positive social change.

The center provides one-on-one coaching for those seeking assistance planning a volunteer event, maintains a database of local volunteer projects, and provides several leadership development opportunities.  Schedule an appointment with Dustin Killpack to learn more.

Community Partner & Volunteer Fairs

The St. Thomas community hosts two volunteer fairs each year to connect students, faculty, and staff with short- or long-term volunteer opportunities. Nonprofits set up booths to share the various ways we can directly impact our local community all for the common good.
