One important way UMass Amherst Parents Association (UMAPA) members can get involved with the UMass Amherst community is volunteering. Through volunteering you'll meet other UMass Parents/families and connect with university staff.
UMAPA Parent/family Volunteers help us represent the university, Office of Parent Services, and UMAPA at various campus events throughout the year. Opportunities include:
- Spring Open Houses for Admitted Students-talking with admitted students and their families about UMass from a parent's perspective and helping hand out literature about the Office of Parent Services and UMAPA.
- Summer Parent Orientation-welcoming families of newly enrolled students to the UMass community and assisting with registration.
- Fall Move-In and Orientation-greeting new students and their families and sharing information for parents.
- Family Weekend-greeting families, assisting with registration, counting participants while enjoying specific events and activities.
