Be a Volunteer

A GBO volunteer giving directions to a new student

Looking for a way to give back to our community and help our students? Become a volunteer with Golden Bear Orientation!

GBO is designed to create opportunities for new students to engage with each other and the campus community, to learn about academic requirements and campus resources, and most importantly, to welcome students into the Berkeley community.

Much of GBO’s success is attributed to the participation and collaboration of our campus community: faculty and staff, as well as continuing students.
