How to Volunteer as a Williams Parent

Each volunteer should fill out this form separately.

Families Volunteer Form

  • Welcome Callers

    Greet incoming first-year families over the summer. They offer support and information and answer parents’ questions about what to expect in the year ahead. Each caller is given the names of five to ten families, usually in the same geographic region, to contact. This is a great way to get to know other parents and expand the Williams family.
  • Parents Fund Committee (PFC)

    The PFC is an annual fundraising effort that supports current operating expenses, especially student life, financial aid, athletics, and faculty resources. PFC members work with other parents – of both past and current students – to solicit support for the college. Working with fellow parents is an enjoyable and rewarding way to become more active in the Williams family. Learn more about the Parents Fund
  • Williams Career Center

    The Career Center helps students connect with professionals in a variety of fields to seek advice about career paths and help in finding internships and jobs. Parents may help by 1) sending the Career Center job and internship postings that cross your desk throughout the year; 2) Offering a summer or winter term internship possibility​ ​at your organization.; 3) Speaking on campus to students about your own career; 4) Hosting a career trek​ ​at your organization​.

  • Office of Admission

    Admission oversees a network of admission volunteers across the country and abroad. Many offer to have their names, phone numbers, and email addresses made available to families of admitted students who might want to call with questions in April. Some also help organize Williams evenings or other events for prospective students, especially during the fall or late spring, when admission officers are traveling in their areas. As a parent of a current student, you can provide a unique and helpful perspective for these families.
