If you have 5 minutes:

If you have an afternoon:

  • Check out our Events page for upcoming AOC virtual gatherings.
  • Host an event, such as a virtual happy hour, panel, lecture, museum tour, cooking demonstration, or reception in your town (once we're doing in-person events again)! You pick the topic and time, and we'll help invite alumni.

If you have 1-2 hours a month:

  • Make yourself available for some informal mentoring. Use your profile in the Alumni Online Community to share your willingness to mentor via fields of expertise, academic interests, career, extracurricular activities, and identity/affinity groups.
  • Consider joining the AOC Steering Committee, where volunteers:
    • provide leadership in creating and shaping the direction of the network
    • make a contribution to The Swarthmore Fund at a personally meaningful level
    • are active participants in network communications via emails and monthly video calls
    • reach out to individuals in their network to share volunteer opportunities and network news
    • serve as ambassadors of the College and network
