Volunteer Texas

We believe volunteering is a cornerstone of what it means to be Texan.

All across the Lone Star State, Texans are stepping up to help their friends and neighbors to build strong, vibrant communities for all. OneStar wants to make it easy for all Texans to engage with their communities through volunteerism.

We focus on the following strategies to support the volunteer network throughout the state and increase levels of volunteerism among Texans:

  • Advance the accessibility of volunteering through management of VolunteerTX, a statewide volunteer connector platform
  • Promote and celebrate volunteer heroes through the annual Governor’s Volunteer Awards
  • Support the volunteering infrastructure during times of disaster
  • Strengthen the capacity of organizations to engage volunteers through statewide and regional training is a digital hub for volunteerism as big as the state of Texas! We collect volunteer opportunities from local volunteer connector organizations, Idealist.Org, AARP, Feeding America, Points of Light, and more, to provide the most comprehensive database of volunteer opportunities in the state, and to connect you to projects and organizations that inspire you to serve.

Texas Association of Volunteer Centers

The Texas Association of Volunteer Centers brings together local volunteer centers to share best practices and exchange ideas and resources, resulting in regional collaboration and enhanced capacity for Texas communities and the statewide nonprofit sector.

Governor’s Volunteer Awards

The Governor’s Volunteer Awards program honors the exemplary service and volunteerism of individuals and organizations making a significant impact in communities across Texas. We invite you to participate in this annual program by nominating deserving individuals and organizations for their service and celebrating the incredible accomplishments of award recipients.
