VT Engage is a service learning and civic engagement center in Virginia Tech’s Division of Student Affairs. We collaborate with communities, students, and faculty to cultivate sustainable, mutually beneficial partnerships through engaged service, learning, and reflection.

We develop student-led service programs and community learning opportunities with faculty that prioritize community need and partnerships development. These programs include both short-term and long-term service opportunities for Virginia Tech students, staff, and faculty. 

Our motto is "action. reflection. knowledge." By combining service with reflection, we hope that program participants will be inspired to think more critically about themselves, the communities they work with, and the social issues they encounter. Our long-term goal for the students we work with is for them to become active, informed citizens during their time in college and long after.
