Volunteers are an essential element that keeps the Choate Rosemary Hall community as close as it is.
There are a number of ways to increase your involvement with the School. Below are just a few of the ways you can become involved. If you are interested in any of the opportunities below, please contact Monica St. James, Director of Alumni Relations.
Volunteer Admissions Network Member
As a member of the Volunteer Admissions Network, or VAN, alumni act as ambassadors of Choate to potential students and their parents by conducting off campus interviews (both in person and over Skype), representing Choate at secondary school fairs, and attending local regional receptions.
College Connect Mentor
A College Connect mentor serves as an informal resource to current Choate students who are interested in hearing more about the mentor's particular college or university. As a mentor, a college-age alum’s role may include simply answering questions over email or perhaps meeting a Choate student on the college or university campus for an informal meeting or tour.
As a Class Agent, you represent the School in your efforts to promote alumni engagement and encourage financial support from members of your class. Alumni are more likely to support the Annual Fund when contacted by a classmate; therefore, a strong Annual Fund is possible only through the efforts of our Class Agent volunteers.
The work of our Class Agents is critical to our success each year, and in the long term. Class Agents also play a vital role in keeping classmates connected by maintaining and promoting communication and by securing updated biographic information.
Student Club Mentor
Be a resource for a student group or organization in person or even remotely. Students from several clubs, including the International Club, Film Club, CALSA, and the Equity Club, to name only a few, would love to connect with you and involve you in their programming.
No set amount of expertise or experience is required – just a mutual love and a little time.
In addition, we offer opportunities throughout the year for alumni to directly engage with students both on and off campus. From career-focused brunches to internships and plenty of options in between, these occasions serve to both exemplify as well as strengthen the Choate community.
