Reconnect with classmates. Make a difference in students’ lives. Help ensure Cal is equitable and accessible to all. You can do all this and more when you volunteer with CAA.
Volunteer with an Alumni Chapter
With more than 90 chapters and online communities—including identity and special-interest groups—it’s easy to find your place to give back among your fellow Golden Bears.
Greet New Students at Summer Welcome Parties
Every year, Alumni Chapters around the country organize gatherings to welcome incoming Cal students, introduce them to Cal traditions, and share alumni stories.
Volunteer with the Alumni Scholars Program
Alumni around the world help us to select more than 800 scholarship recipients annually! CAA is seeking application readers, interviews and scholarship chairs. This is a great way to connect with current students and meet with alumni.
Our experiences at Cal may change through the years, but students say one thing is constant: the support they receive from alumni enriches their time at Berkeley. Get to know the many ways you can show your support for students today.
