The Penn State Lehigh Valley Alumni Society is strengthened by the participation of alumni volunteers dedicated to the mission and vision of their alma mater. Their support allows Penn State to continue its growth path of educating leaders of conscience dedicated to being outstanding individuals in their community. The mission of the Penn State Alumni Association is to connect alumni to the University and to each other, to provide valued services to members, and to support the University’s mission of teaching, research, and service. Today, that mission is brought to life through events and programs such as:
- City Lights educational and cultural programs in five major East Coast cities
- Pep rallies at all away football games
- Huddle with the Faculty lectures before all home football games
- Reunion weekends
- Homecoming events
- much more
The mission is also embodied in the Alumni Association’s commitment to recognize outstanding alumni and alumni volunteers through its award programs.
Alumni Relations actively recruits volunteers to assist in the engagement of alumni to attend, plan and participate in activities to help improve The Penn State Lehigh Valley Alumni Society for current and future alumni. A variety of volunteer opportunities are available for all alumni to help advance their alma mater.
We seek volunteers who have the combination of available time, a defined talent and resources to share with their fellow alumni and their alma mater. Alumni who are interested in sharing their career experience with current and future students, referring potential students to their alma mater, proud of their alma mater, believe in securing the future of Penn State and/or employing current and future alumni will succeed well while volunteering as a new board member of the Penn State Lehigh Valley Alumni Society.
The time commitments and responsibilities vary with each opportunity available to alumni.

We have prepared background materials for the volunteer opportunities that will be shared with you after submission of the volunteer form.
