Since your question has been unanswered for a few days, I'll take a stab at it.

Start with the Texas Workforce Commission (http://www.twc.state.tx.us/). Their purpose and mission is listed below.

Texas Workforce Commission (TWC) is the state agency charged with overseeing and providing workforce development services to employers and job seekers of Texas. TWC strengthens the Texas economy by providing the workforce development component of the Governor's economic development strategy. Texas boasts an incredibly skilled workforce ready to attract enterprise to the Lone Star State. By focusing on the needs of employers, TWC gives Texas the competitive edge necessary to draw business here.

Our mission is to promote and support an effective workforce system that offers employers, individuals and communities the opportunity to achieve and sustain economic prosperity. Our TWC Mission, Vision and Philosophy give more information about our goals and core beliefs.

There is a document called "Directory of Workforce Solutions offices" which you can find in TWC's website: it lists several office locations and phone numbers (http://www.twc.state.tx.us/dirs/wdas/wfc_list.pdf).

Alternatively, you can search for volunteer opportunities virtually or near your area to gain experience in the field that interests you. Websites like http://volunteermatch.org and http://idealist.org would be a good place to start your search. You can also visit http://www.main.org/webhelp/index.html to see more options in volunteering.

I hope this helps.
