Upcoming VOLUNTEER OPPORTUNITIES for Student-Athletes

Our student-athletes know that being a Tiger means taking pride in giving back to the community.  By participating in Community Service, the student-athletes are given a chance to interact with their supportive fans across the city of Memphis.  This aspect of the PAWS Program focuses on reaching out to the community and engaging locals and student-athletes in a positive manner.


The University of Memphis PAWS Program strongly encourages each team to participate in at least one community service event per year.  That gives the student-athletes a chance to reach out and help all four years at the university.  These events are scheduled within their individual sports, as part of Conference USA or through a scheduled Student-Athlete Development event -- all of which benefit the Memphis community.Student-Athletes are involved in a wide array of service projects including canned food drives, Up 'Til Dawn, Read to Succeed, Habitat for Humanity, and many others!

Check out the Video from the Bring It! Book Drive - We collected over 12,000 Books!

A Tiger Christmas

This year was the first annual A Tiger Christmas at the University of Memphis.  The student-athletes teamed up with the Athletic Department and raised money and sporting equipment to donate to the kids at Youth Villages.  The student-athletes also hosted a group of boys from Youth Villages for A Tiger Christmas Evening.  They spent the evening decorating cookies with the kids, touring the Penny Hardaway Hall of Fame and giving the kids a special Memphis Tiger themed gift!
