Volunteer Opportunities

Show your WPI pride by contributing your time and talents as an alumni volunteer! Volunteering for WPI can keep you connected and fulfilled, and volunteers play a critical role in creating connections, enhancing the student experience, and spreading the WPI message.

Volunteer opportunities exist for different levels of expertise, interests, and time commitments. In every form, the work of alumni volunteers is vital to the missions of the Alumni Association and WPI and provides valuable support to other alumni, the community, future students, and the growth of the university.

Wherever you are, there are ways to give back to WPI. Explore the ways you can volunteer with WPI and share your passion for the university!

Reunion Committees

Get involved with your Class Reunion efforts and reconnect with your classmates along the way! Reunion committee volunteers provide input regarding their reunion celebration, reach out to classmates to encourage attendance, and create buzz about Alumni Weekend. Some committees also participate in fundraising efforts in honor of their reunion.

WPI Tech Reps

Do you love social media? WPI alumni can help increase communication and engagement within the WPI community by being Tech Reps, volunteers who share the latest WPI news and information - like blog posts, event and contest information, new stories, and more - using their social networks on Facebook, LinkedIn, and/or Twitter. 

Science Fair Judges Needed!

The Worcester Regional Science and Engineering Fair committee is planning the 62nd High School Regional Fair, to be held on Friday, March 10, 2017, and the 18th Middle School Regional Fair, to be held in May 2017. Both fairs will be held on campus at WPI. The committee is in need of judges to score projects the morning of the fairs. The only requirements are a STEM-related degree and an interest in encouraging today's youth to become leaders in in the ever-competitive future. If you are a WPI alumnus and are interested in this judging opportunity, please contact Steve Bernacki '70, or click on the "Judges" link the fair website.  

Relocation Contacts

WPI students and alumni are on the move! Some move across the state, across the country, and even across the globe once they leave WPI. We're looking for alumni who are willing to be relocation contacts to educate and acclimate those members of the community who are moving to a new place.

Sponsor a Student Project

By sponsoring a project, your company engages the fresh perspective of a dedicated student team - employing the most recent, state-of-the-art techniques, practices and theories - guided by top-notch faculty, to tackle pressing business challenges.  Our records show that ideas presented by WPI students translate into tangible solutions for project sponsors, and returns on investment well exceed initial costs. In addition, projects can be a unique opportunity to screen for future talent.

Career Development Center Opportunities

Alumni volunteers working with the Career Development Center encourage their companies to recruit at WPI, hire WPI students for co-ops or internships, offer informational interviews to WPI students, and provide feedback to WPI students on their resumes. If you're interested in being a volunteer with the CDC let us know!

More Volunteer Opportunities

Throughout the year we have opportunities for alumni to get involved with events, fundraising, and judging student GPS (Great Problems Seminar) projects. If you're interested in learning more about these opportunities, please let us know!
