When you volunteer, Cornell benefits

Thousands of volunteers help keep Cornell strong and connected, and contribute to our community. Cornell has many ways for you to volunteer. Some opportunities can be done in a day and some, online. You can connect with alumni from former student groups, with a class, or in a region. You can mentor students on campus or join other alumni, parents, and friends in your hometown to be of service to your nearby community in the Cornell name and spirit.

Some people look back on their post-graduation years and realize they have spent a lifetime volunteering for Cornell! Many have felt all the richer for it and we recognize these top volunteers through our annual award programs.

When you volunteer, Cornell benefits—and so can you.
