Why Volunteer?

When you volunteer for Dickinson, you’ll strengthen the bond you have with other alumni, with the college, and with the extended Dickinson community. We have volunteers from nearly all class years, 45 states and Washington, D.C., and countries from Argentina to Nepal and Australia to Kazakhstan. When you connect with other alumni from a wide range of backgrounds, regions and interests, as well as current students, you’re surrounded by the qualities that make you proud to call Dickinson your alma mater.

Each year, Dickinsonians volunteer as Dickinson Fund class agents, reunion committee members, Parents Leadership Council members, career mentors and recruiters of prospective students.

Not all volunteer jobs require a lot of time or long-term commitments. In fact, most of the volunteer opportunities only require 1-2 hours per month! Consider some of the opportunities below that may suit you and your schedule. 

If you are interested in finding out more about any volunteer options, please fill out our Volunteer Interest Form or contact our staff at dsonfund@dickinson.edu. You may also contact the Office of Engagement & the Dickinson Fund for more information.
