Rio and Beyond needs you! Most of the current Rio and Beyond committee members have students graduating in June so these great events will not continue for your students without new volunteers. Current board members will mentor you before their tenure is up so that there’s a smooth transition.



  • President

  • Marketing & Communications (1-2 volunteers needed)

  • Conversations with Sophomores and Juniors (1-3 volunteers)

  • Volunteer Coordination (1-2 volunteers)

  • College Night (2 volunteers needed)

  • Website

  • Invent Your Own (let us know how you want to help)

Don’t worry, you can put your pinky toe in the water or dive in, no matter the role. Not a big time commitment (you and a friend can share any role). If your student is new to Rio, a great way to network, meet parents, and get to know the Rio community.  Still not sure? Rio and Beyond volunteers say it’s the best way to learn the inside scoop on how to navigate the college process and career options. Priceless!
