Looking for a volunteer opportunity that provides value to UC Davis and makes you feel as if you're making a difference? UC Davis Alumni and Affiliate Relations provides many opportunities for you to connect with students, alumni and families. 

Parent volunteer opportunities are here. To learn about student volunteer opportunities, please join the Student Alumni Association to receive notifications via email. Alumni opportunities are listed below.  

Lead or Join a Network  

Alumni looking to build leadership skills can lead a network, helping to organize alumni programming in your geographic area or within a special interest or affinity network. For more information about the responsibilities and requirements of this role, review the CAAA Network Leader position description.  

Read Scholarship Essays  

The Cal Aggie Alumni Association is always looking for volunteers willing to read essays for the number of scholarships and awards offered by CAAA and its affiliate partners. Alumni volunteers who help read scholarship applications often find themselves inspired by the remarkable potential of UC Davis students. Reading, evaluating and scoring scholarship applications is a time-intensive role calling for a commitment of 20-40+ hours from a small, select group of volunteers.  

Volunteer on a Committee  

Help shape the success and future of CAAA as a board or committee member. Any Aggie can apply to be a board member or to serve on a committee of the Board. 

Support Career Programs  

In the spirit of Aggies helping Aggies, CAAA is seeking alumni willing to support career-focused events by sharing about their own career journey and offering general career advice or industry knowledge and expertise.  

Connect with Students  

Support and engage with students throughout their time at UC Davis through welcome events, student-alumni networking events, Commencement, and more.  

Explore More Opportunities  

There are still more ways to volunteer with Alumni and Affiliate Relations, UC Davis as a whole, and the UC more broadly. From advocacy to mentoring to event staffing, there are a number of opportunities to lend one's time and talents.
