Parent-to-Parent Outreach

Parent-to-parent outreach programs are designed to offer parent volunteers, both near and far, an opportunity to build the parent community through networking, communicating directly with other parents in person, on the phone and via e-mail.

  • Veteran parents greet new Wesleyan families as part of our WESHaul team on Arrival Day, both in the Student Resources Pavilion and in residential facilities across campus.

  • Experienced Wesleyan parents provide interested families of newly admitted students an opportunity to reach out to them via the Parent-to-Parent Resource List volunteer program.

  • Experienced parents serve as panelists in April during WesFest, responding to questions expressed by parents of admitted students.

  •  Parents participate on the ParentsTalk list, in which parents can communicate electronically directly with each other.

These programs are especially important in engaging parents outside of the local area, in order to make the Wesleyan family a more encompassing, inclusive community.

If you are interested in being involved, need more information or have a question, please contact the Office of Parent Programs  via e-mail or phone (860) 685-3756.
