Volunteer driven community service with a purpose!
Please consider joining Team OYOU by volunteering your time! Our volunteers are the cornerstone in which the rest of our organization is built. Giving to others can also help protect your mental and physical health. It can reduce stress, combat depression, keep you mentally stimulated, and provide a sense of purpose. Volunteering allows you to connect to your community and make it a better place. Dedicating your time as a volunteer also helps you make new friends, expand your social network, and boost your social skills. Please review our events and check out dates for the opportunities you’re interested in. While some opportunities allow you to arrive and depart anytime, many of our events are project based and require specific dates of commitment.
Volunteer opportunities include community service and outreach to children and seniors. Own Your Own Universe (OYOU) is a 501 C3 non-profit organization based out of San Marcos and Martindale, Texas. It is our mission to make the arts accessible to everyone, and particularly to empower and transform lives by connecting the mind, body, and spirit through music and the creative arts.
