UC Davis Parent Ambassadors

UC Davis Parent Ambassadors is a unique group of committed and community-minded Aggie Parent and Family Association members who have decided to volunteer their time to the UC Davis community.

Volunteering provides parents and family members with a great way to learn more about the UC Davis campus community and get to meet other members of the Aggie Family. We welcome your participation at the level of volunteerism that works for you and your schedule--whether it is helping at one event a year or leading numerous on or off-campus projects.

To be a UC Davis Parent Ambassador, you must be a member of the Aggie Parent and Family Association.

Volunteer Opportunities

Volunteer opportunities include helping with event set up and clean up, hospitality, registration, participating on a parent panel, making congratulatory phone calls to parents of admitted students, or even hosting a regional event. Sharing your impression of UC Davis, campus resources such as Parent and Family Programs, and your student's experiences is invaluable to prospective UC Davis parents.

Parent and Family Programs annual events could include:
- Parent Orientations (summer, on campus)
- Student Send-Offs (summer, regional & on campus)
- Move-In Weekend (September, on campus)
- Parent and Family Weekend (late October or early November, on campus)
- Winter Parent and Family Weekend (February, on campus)
- Coffee Talks (March, regional)
- Admitted Students welcome calls (spring, regional)
- Picnic Day (April, on campus)
- Decision Days (April-May, on campus)

There is no set time commitment for volunteering. You can participate for as long or as much as you decide.

There are no formal meetings for this volunteer group. Ambassadors are notified via email of opportunities.
