Do you enjoy making things happen and bringing people together? The Boston Conservatory at Berklee alumni community needs you! As a volunteer, you have an important role in making our events successful, and you’ll get to meet and work with other alumni.
- Host alumni events in your area.
- Assist with planning alumni professional development or networking opportunities.
- Connect with fellow alumni by extending personal invitations to events and performances.
Volunteering for events is a flexible time commitment and works well within busy schedules.
Do you love talking about your experience at the Conservatory? Admissions is looking for alumni volunteers to attend regional auditions and college fairs across the country. You’ll get to share your experience and insights with prospective students and their families.
Alumni mentors and upperclassmen/graduate students are matched based on professional interests and artistic discipline. Alumni mentors form a one-on-one connection with their student mentee to provide insight and advice and serve as a professional resource.
With modest commitments of time, mentors are able to stay connected to the artistry that drives the Conservatory while giving back in a meaningful way and having a lasting impact on students.
Mentoring is mutually beneficial. Your professional experience, knowledge, and insight will help students maximize their time at the Conservatory and open their eyes to the opportunities and challenges they will face after graduation. While students benefit from your experience and insight, they’ll expose you to the ideas that are shaping the Conservatory today. You will form meaningful relationships that will help prepare students and inspire them to stay connected to the Conservatory.
Mentors and mentees are matched early in the fall semester and work together for a full academic year.
