Where can I volunteer in Corpus Christi?

Anyone looking for a way to volunteer in Corpus Christi will find exactly what they need to know right here in the Corpus Christi Volunteer Handbook. From working with animals in animal shelters to running events, taking care of children and feeding the hungry, Corpus Christi volunteers are needed in every possible capacity.

Every organization needs donations and fundraising help, but it also needs human power. Several environmental and beautification organizations are looking for volunteers to help clean up parks and beaches.

Shelters need people to clean, feed, and play with lost pets or animals that are looking for a forever home. You can even care for kittens and puppies in your own home!

Cultural organizations like theater need actors, ticket takers, costume designers and lighting technicians. Museums need lecturers, office assistants, and period re-enactors.

The city of Corpus Christi uses volunteers in a variety of areas, including working with seniors, children, and the police.

For those who want a behind-the-scenes look at the many events happening in Corpus Christi, you can volunteer for the Buc Days, Fiesta de la Flor, Festival of the Arts, and Harbor Lights Festival. Information on what is needed and where to volunteer can be found in the interactive icons above (just click or touch!) Or in the volunteer calendar on the right.

Some of the organizations looking for volunteers are the Texas State Aquarium and the Second Changes Wildlife Rehabilitation Center. The Coastal Bend Boys and Girls Club, Driscoll Children’s Hospital, and Big Brothers Big Sisters are always looking for people to work with children.
