William & Mary

Partnership Program

THANK YOU for your interest in becoming a Volunteer Partner!


General Information

This program was designed for employees who have a depth of knowledge about the College and local community to provide help to new employees, especially those who may also be new to the area.  This is a great way to meet new employees and maybe even learn things you don’t know about the College.

Program in a nutshell:

  • New employees are matched with someone like YOU, a Volunteer Partner
  • Once matched, you and the new employee will meet over the next 2-3 months.  Some services you can provide are:
    • Meeting with the new employee for 2-3 months, hopefully making a friend in the process!
    • Introducing the new employee to people and places, on campus and off
    • Alerting new employees about upcoming events, on campus and in the surrounding area
    • Assisting new residents find all those things one needs...from basics like dry cleaners and laundry mats to professional services like doctors and dentists
    After 2-3 months, the Partnership formally ends. 
    • Please complete an evaluation of the program,
    • Decide if you want to continue as a Partner and be considered for a new match
    • Let the Partnership Program Management Team know your decision.
