Admission Volunteer

Admission volunteers raise the visibility of Haverford and provide important personal contact that prospective students and their parents hope to find throughout the college search process.

Volunteer Opportunities Include:

Interviewing prospective students in your local area

Being interviewed by a Haverford representative closer to home is especially important for students who do not have the means or opportunity to travel to campus. The interview is informational and evaluative and your personal contact can make a significant difference for individuals with limited knowledge about the distinguishing features of a Haverford education.

Attending college fairs and events at local schools and community centers

You may be asked to represent Haverford at an assigned booth or table in a school hall or gymnasium where parents and students seek information about colleges. We’ll provide you with materials and information before the event. Most events take place in the evening.

Interviewing students via Skype

Some students live in places (often internationally) where there are no local Haverford alumni volunteers. In these cases, we try to connect those students with an alumnus who can talk with them via Skype.

For Current Volunteers:

The Alumni Volunteer Guide and the Interview Report are password protected. Volunteers can refer to the most recent Alumni Volunteer email newsletter from Amy Abolafia for their passwords.
