What is the Parent Volunteer Service Award?
Pitzer parent volunteers donate their time and talent to Pitzer College in many meaningful ways, including but not limited to organizing, staffing, and hosting special events, welcoming new parents, participating in internship and mentorship opportunities, speaking to the Pitzer community, and other special projects related to their interests.
Parent volunteers have committed themselves to advancing students’ futures and have bettered the College through their commitment to our mission and core values. This award seeks to celebrate volunteerism and honor those that shine brightly within our Pitzer parent community.
