Volunteering at KTH
Getting involved is not only a chance for you to give something back to your alma mater. It is also a way for you to reconnect with KTH, benefit your organisation, further your professional development and create valuable networking opportunities.
Alumni volunteers who give their time and experience are critical for the continuing success of KTH. Remember that whether you can spare a few hours, a single day, or make a more regular commitment you can really make a difference. There are a number of ways in which you can get involved – from mentoring current students to setting up an alumni association.
To register your interest in volunteering, please send us an e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will get in touch with you.
Alumni groups and chapters
Alumni groups provide valuable resources and experiences for alumni. They offer a chance to develop a career path, to build relationships, networks and opportunities and to have a good time. The groups are based on either a common interest, educational subject background or geographical location and are managed by alumni volunteers supported by the Alumni Relations Office.
The success of our international associations and chapters relies on the dedication of alumni volunteers to organise events, handle membership and stay in touch with the university. If there are not enough alumni living in your area to sustain a new chapter you could become a Key Contact for your region.
By engaging as a mentor, you contribute to a better and more high-quality study time for our students, at the same time as it is an opportunity to develop yourself. Your skills and your experiences from professional life and everyday life are both important and valuable in the role of mentor.
