What is a Class Ambassador?

As a Class Ambassador, you will reach out to ten classmates of your choosing to engage in a conversation about the importance of giving back to the university. You will serve as William & Mary’s link to your community, providing regular updates and ways to engage with the university.

Whether you’re thanking a current donor or encouraging a new gift, your efforts will make a huge difference!

Class Ambassadors fulfill each of these responsibilities to make a huge impact at William & Mary. You can reach out to your peers however you’d like and on your own time. This alumni-led initiative is completely flexible and dependent upon your schedule. You will have a staff liaison who can work one-on-one with you to guide you through the process and answer any questions.


Why Volunteer?

Reconnect with former classmates
Our current Class Ambassadors have shared with us that one of the most rewarding aspects of the program is catching up with friends and classmates with whom they have lost touch. Serving as a volunteer is a great way to regularly engage with classmates and rekindle old friendships

Receive exclusive volunteer updates regarding news and happenings at William & Mary
As a Class Ambassador, you will receive special updates from leaders at the university. You will be the first in your network to know about upcoming university events and the latest news stories.

Make a difference in the lives of William & Mary students
