Volunteer Opportunities

Notre Dame depends on the voluntary support of alumnae and alumni.

Service is a key value in our community. But how do we know how much time a volunteer role requires? Check out the ways you can give your time, talent, and resources to the NDMU family using your availability as your guide. 

Interested in any of these activities? Contact the Office of Alumnae and Alumni Relations: ndmalum@ndm.edu or 410-532-5201 to sign up.

Additional volunteer opportunities are in development; check this page for updates!

Have a few minutes?

Make a participatory gift to the Notre Dame Fund

It only takes a minute to make a big impact! When NDMU has higher participation rates we significantly increase our chances of receiving funds from foundations and other major donors. It's a win-win! Make your participatory gift today. 

Tell us about a job or internship opening in your company. 

We can help spread the word through our Career Center.

Write a note of encouragement to an undergraduate student.

A message of support can be a wonderful way to help an undergraduate get through the year. Email your note to ndmalum@ndm.edu. Please keep your note generic and brief. Notes will be distributed close to spring break in March, 2018.

Have a few hours?

Be a guest writer in one of our publications. 

NDMU graduates are often our best communicators. Guest writers are welcome for our Tower Talk and Universitas publications.

Conduct a mock interview for an undergraduate student.

Students in our First Impressions program are in need of mock interviewers. Interviews are conducted in person and on NDMU's campus in the spring. HR or professionals with hiring experience are encouraged to volunteer.

Provide a half-day of job shadowing.

An opportunity to see first-hand what an "afternoon in the life" is like can be very beneficial for a student. During the academic year, opportunities in the Greater Baltimore area are especially appreciated to allow students to accommodate this time with their class schedule. We welcome job shadowing offers all over the globe during the summer months.

Organize and host a Notre Dame networking event at your office or local watering hole. 

Early morning, happy hour, or evening are excellent times to link up with like-minded professionals. Let us know the details and we'll be happy to talk with you about local alumnae/alumni outreach!

Encourage peer-support in the Notre Dame Fund. 

Volunteers can help by making phone calls to fellow graduates and/or writing thank-you notes to donors. 

Attend an athletic event.
