Share Your Time and Talent

The extended classroom of Washington, D.C., provides GW students access to truly unique experiences. The perspective you can offer as a mentor or advisor can be even more valuable. There are many ways you can volunteer with GW, including student-focused opportunities.

Volunteer Leaders

Volunteer leaders bring their knowledge to bear in promoting program initiatives and leading long-term planning strategies. They foster collaboration between GW and local, national, and global leaders to help our students attain their goals. Their efforts show the highest dedication to GW’s past and future. Learn more about the GW Alumni Association and school and college advisory councils.

Alumni Volunteers

Our alumni volunteers guide students on career paths by hosting a dinner or information session, or share experiences at lectures or special events, such as our summer send-offs for new GW community members or the 'How Do I Become A..." lecture series. You can also interact with students and alumni through one of our many industry, regional, and affinity networks.

Your knowledge and enthusiasm contribute to our mission of excellence and help students make the most of their GW experience.
