Project 2017 - Dobie Middle School

It was so much fun volunteering at the Dobie Middle School! We had a blast shaping the trees and adding a beautiful scene to the front of the middle school.

Gave 4.00 hours on 02/25/2017 with The University of Texas at Austin

This was my second time volunteering for the DACA clinic and I had an amazing experience! I helped out with registration, being a runner, and a story collector. It was rewarding helping undocumented immigrants with their papers. I listen to a story from a middle age man who crossed the border with his daughter from Mexico. He told me about the rough times he had coming to America and how he kept going through all the challenges he faced. After speaking with him, I was truly motivated to helping immigrants. Overall, I loved my experience volunteering with DACA!

Francisca @ SXSW Music Panel

I had so much fun! This was definitely an experience to remember! I made so many new friends and people! I was a volunteer for the SXSW Music Panel and some of the roles I had were making sure each room was ready for the panel. I also had to check up on the panelist to see if they were taken care of. I would recommend this to everyone! The Music Panel made me feel like I was at home and they were like family. This job helps you take leadership roles and the awesome part is that you get to meet awesome famous people! I am looking forward to next year!

Francisca @ Habitat for Humanity

I loved this experience! I volunteered for Habitat for Humanity and it was awesome! They made us build homes and the thing I liked about this was that we were actually given the opportunity to get involved! I painted a newly built home and added some caulking to the sides. Then I was moved inside the home to take out some wood that had nails. I successfully managed to get the wood out of the home and paint the house! It was nice knowing that I was doing this for someone who needed a home. Over all I would definitely recommend this to everyone!

Night Lights - Trail of Lights Preview Party

This was my second year volunteering for the Austin Trail of Lights and I loved it! Last year I was a trial ambassador but this year I got lucky to be given the privilege to greet visitors at the entrance. I met so many people from out of town and from Austin. I was also giving out door prize tickets to visitors as they came in. I want to say more than 500 people showed up to the annual Austin Trial of Lights just on that night. I would highly recommend this to everyone! I met another student from ULN who I had never seen before and another student that attends a high school in Austin. This was a great experience and I had so much fun!

Francisca @ Queue

This experience was amazing! I had so much fun! This was my first year volunteering for Fun Fun Fun Fest and I would do it again! I was working with Queue which is an Official Ticketing Company for the fest. The staff were so nice! The job I had was to scan people's bracelets as they came in. There were so many people and lines were very long. I was super hyped everyday and getting everyone pumped to come to Fun Fun Fun Fest. This one guy even recorded my voice to make a theme song for the fest because my voice was gone by the second day from welcoming everyone to this exciting event. People even remembered me from the previous day and loved that I had such a high spirit. Overall I loved this event and I would highly recommend it!!!!

Peña Saddles Up For Charrería

I had such an amazing experience going to the Pena Saddles Up For Charreria! I personally met some Texas Charros! I had such a great time volunteering at the concession stand and watching Mexico's National sport. I would definitely recommend this event to everyone!
