Alumni Volunteers

UC Merced Students

We are always looking for #AlumniInfluencers like you! Whether you're interested in supporting current students or connecting with campus leadership, we have a number of volunteer opportunities! Learn about a few of our current programs and initiatives before completing the form below:

Bobcats Helping Bobcats
In partnership with the Office of Leadership, Service and Career, the UC Merced Alumni Association has launched "Bobcats Helping Bobcats" to provide career assistance to current students. Volunteers can provide resume reviews, hold mock interviews, or provide insight to students seeking their next career opportunity. 
Speaker Opportunities
The Office of Alumni Relations and UC Merced Alumni Association are continually seeking opportunities to engage alumni volunteers. Through collaborations with campus partners, such as the Student Alumni Association, Office of Leadership, Service & Career (Career Center), and Margo F. Souza Leadership Center to name a few, we offer a number of speaking opportunities throughout the year for alumni to share their advice directly with students. From the Alumni Career Chat Employment Success Series (A.C.C.E.S.S.) to the Margo F. Souza Leadership Conference, join our registry of alumni for the opportunity to share your journey beyond UC Merced!
Alumni-Hosted Dinners
In collaboration with the Student Alumni Association (SAA), Alumni-Hosted Dinners create a space for a small group of students to engage in meaningful dialogue with alumni, while also giving them the opportunity to expand their network. Let us know if you'd like to host regionally, locally, or virtually. Dinners can be centered around a theme such as career, major, school or interests. 
Regional Events
Our campus leaders are always interested in connecting with alumni and learning about their stories. Let us know if you'd like to be included or serve as a regional ambassador for future opportunities (virtual or in-person)!


Let us know how you learned about these volunteer opportunities:
If you're a volunteer for the Bobcats Helping Bobcats program, please specify how you would like to be involved (e.g. resume reviews, sharing internships, hosting mock interviews, etc.). If you've volunteered to serve as a panelist or speaker, let us know what topic or theme you'd like to speak on (e.g. career, major, industry). If you've volunteered for an Alumni-Hosted Dinner, please let us know where you'd like to connect with Students (e.g. Merced, LA, San Francisco, etc.).
