Parent Volunteer Network

Volunteerism and service to the community are central components of the education your student receives at Cal Lutheran, and we invite you to consider making them a part of your own Cal Lutheran experience through the Parent Volunteer Network (PVN).

The PVN is composed of parents who are interested in staying informed about available volunteer opportunities. Parent volunteer opportunities will initially be communicated to the PVN via email. Follow-up phone calls will be made only to those who have agreed to take part. There is no obligation to participate.

Undergraduate and Graduate Commencement Ceremonies
Alumni and parent volunteers are needed for one of our biggest events of the year, Commencement! We will welcome more than 10,000 visitors to campus on Friday, May 15 (graduate ceremonies) and Saturday, May 16 (undergraduate ceremonies Volunteering is a fun role, with no heavy lifting! All you have to do is roam around handing out Proud Cal Lutheran Family stickers and fans to graduation attendees while you congratulate them on their students’ success. So join the celebration – help us welcome the newest group of graduates to Cal Lutheran Alumni!

Parent Calling Campaigns – Fall and Spring
The college admission process can be a confusing time for students and their families. As such, we offer support in the form of phone calls to parents of admitted and deposited students in the Spring each year. Newly admitted parents receive calls of welcome and support from those best qualified to answer questions about the parent experience: current Cal Lutheran parents.  Then, in the Fall, parent callers follow up to check-in on the new Cal Lutheran parents in their area to see if they can provide any guidance.
