Become a Volunteer
We couldn’t do what we do at First Graduate without the support of our amazing volunteers. First Graduate relies on more than 300 volunteers annually to support students on their journey towards becoming first generation college graduates – from the instant a young person enrolls with us as a middle school student, to the triumphant moment when s/he graduates from college.
Here’s how you can get involved today:
1. Fill out the Volunteer Application Form
