Our Career Connections Volunteer Program connects Pioneer alumni who have career experience and advice to give with fellow alumni and students looking for help starting or advancing their careers. The program offers a variety of opportunities (online and in-person) to get involved and share your expertise.

Volunteer From Your Desk or Mobile Device
Many of our career programs and networking events now take place online through our Forever Pioneer Network Online Experience. We host chat-based events for you to connect with students and/or alumni and provide 1-on-1 advice. It's a fast, efficient, and terrific way to give back and help your fellow Pioneers.

Event Ambassadors: We’re always looking for friendly Pioneers to share their alumni pride at events on campus and in the community.

Office Support: Volunteers can help with various office tasks including mailings, event preparation, database support (excel experience a plus!), phone calls, internet research, etc. No experience required, just a willingness to be contacted when we have a job to be done and you can pick and choose what works for you!
