Volunteer Opportunities


Join an alumni chapter
Alumni chapters exist to foster unity and loyalty among members and to promote Marygrove College's presence throughout the world. There are three types of alumni chapters geographic (such as the Akron Alumni Chapter), affinity (such as a Griot Alumni Chapter) and academic (such as a Master in the Art of Teaching Alumni Chapter).

Become a mentor to a current student or recent graduate
Mentoring takes many different shapes and levels of involvement. Each provides valuable support to Marygrove students

Level 1 Accept a call or e-mail from a student or recent graduate interested in discussing your field of work.

Level 2 Meet with a student or recent graduate in person to provide career coaching,

Level 3 Visit a department, class or student organization to discuss your career experiences and offer advice.

Level 4 Coordinate exposure to the workplace through job shadowing, informational interviewing or internships.

Level 5 Establish an on-going professional career guidance relationship with a student or recent graduate.

Provide general office and classroom support
Assist in offices or departments when extra help is needed, such as mailings, telephoning, data entry or reorganization of files. Make a presentation or lead a discussion on a topic about which you have special knowledge. Help with small group discussion, special project assistance or accompany groups on field trips.

Organize or support community service projects
Organize a group of Marygrove alumni to participate in a service project or event with which you are already involved. Start a new project with other Marygrove alumni. Help organize a Marygrove alumni group to participate in national, regional or local events such as Make A Difference Day or Clean Sweep Detroit.
