Volunteer for Gettysburg College

Here are just a few ways to help Gettysburg College and its students.

Provide career guidance to undergraduates - Today's students benefit immeasurably from the wisdom and experience of alumni, parents, and friends who have become successful professionals. Gettysburg professionals meet with students to discuss accomplishments and pitfalls from their careers, serve as mentors, provide networking contacts, and help in other ways. Join the Gettysburg College Professional Network on LinkedIn and answer questions, pass along leads, and help your friends and employer find talented employees. Details.

Sponsor a career experience for a student - Students crave "real world" experiences offered by alumni, parents and friends of the College. By offering students an internship, externship, job shadowing, mock interview, or on-campus career talk, you help current students and promote your career areas and organizations. Details.

Promote Gettysburg to prospective students - Serve as an admissions KARE (Key Alumni Resource Effort) representative and help high-achieving high-school students in your region learn more about what a Gettysburg education has to offer them. Request information.

Support fundraising for Gettysburg - Each year, the College relies on volunteers to reach out to fellow classmates, alumni, and parents on behalf of Gettysburg College to carry on the tradition of supporting the Gettysburg Fund. Class Agents are the primary fundraisers in each (non-reunion) class and members of the Parents Advisory Board Development Committee reach out to other parents. They write letters, call or email peers, and serve as a liaison between Gettysburg and classmates or fellow parents. Request information.

Provide leadership for your class - Serve on a reunion planning committee or as a class correspondent. Keep in touch and reconnect with classmates while advocating for your alma mater. Request information.

Work with your Regional Club - Gettysburgians throughout the world stay connected to each other and the College by getting involved in one of our regional alumni clubs. The clubs host speakers, organize volunteer efforts, offer educational programs, and sponsor a variety of social and cultural activities that bring alumni, parents, and friends from the region together. Being active in a club is a great way to stay in touch with old friends, make new ones, network, and remain active in the extended Gettysburg community. Details.
