About Us

 The Metropolitan Volunteer Program is student organization at the University of Houston that creates and provides service opportunities for students by collaborating with campus and community partners. Membership in the Metropolitan Volunteer Program is entirely free and open to the entire student body. Volunteering with MVP not only provides students with the opportunity to make a positive impact on our campus and community, but also to gain leadership skills, build relationships with fellow students, and gain experience in their field of interest.

We have volunteer opportunities to fit the needs for every student, whether you are looking to assist with our smaller, ongoing service projects or the larger annual service events that MVP hosts each semester.
