Volunteer and Get Rewarded

The Parents Association provides a multitude of opportunities to volunteer. In recognition of your service, you will be rewarded points towards “reserved seating” at your UCR student’s commencement ceremony.

Earn Parent Points

Each volunteer activity is worth one point. You can also earn half a point by attending a parent meeting! Six points are currently required to qualify for reserved seating.
