Cal Parents Ambassadors champion UC Berkeley and promote goodwill for the university through a variety of volunteer opportunities – both on and off campus. Each year, this group of parents, grandparents, and guardians play an important role in supporting the Cal community and serving as a valuable peer resource to new and prospective Cal families across the country.

Become an Ambassador to:

  • Be more connected to your student’s college experience
  • Meet other Cal parents through volunteerism
  • Help a large university feel smaller
  • Make a difference for Berkeley

Benefits of being an Ambassador:

  • Network with other Cal parents and grow an extended family
  • Get to know Cal Parents staff and Berkeley more intimately
  • Gain insider knowledge of resources to benefit your student
  • Have a good excuse to visit the campus and see your student!

Annual volunteer opportunities include staffing a Cal Parents & Families information table at:  Move-In (August, Berkeley campus); Parents Weekend at Homecoming (October, Berkeley campus)Admitted Student Receptions (April, in selected U.S. cities); and Cal Day (April, Berkeley campus).
