Volunteering Opportunities

Join an Advisory Board

Each college has an advisory board made up of alumni, companies and community members who help advise the programs and produce support through funding, internships and mentoring. Many board members serve as guest lecturers and assist students with classroom projects. If you can't commit to ongoing service on an advisory board, consider volunteering in one of the areas below.

Mentor a WWU Student

The Ask! Program is a network created to connect WWU students and alumni for mentoring and career networking.  You can volunteer to help students launch their careers on the Ask! website.

Provide an Internship

Employers can utilize Viking CareerLink to post internship opportunities or work directly with the colleges to recruit top students to work for their company while pursuing their degrees. Many programs offer internship credit with minimal requirements on behalf of the company to complete.
