Become a Volunteer!

Our students succeed because volunteers like you commit to bringing change to San Francisco families. 

Each year, we offer many volunteering opportunities that support our students and level the education playing field so that they can attend the college of their dreams.

Volunteer Opportunities

There are many ways that you can make a positive impact on students’ lives.

Career Exploration Volunteers

Expose students to the many career opportunities that are available with a college degree. Share your professional experience and provide resume, job, internship, and interview advice that allows our students to grow professionally with confidence. Career Exploration Volunteers play a huge role in getting our students excited about future careers.

College Mentoring Volunteers

Coach students as they write the perfect personal statement essay as part of the college application process and then support them during their first year in college.

Academic Volunteers

Play a major role in keeping our students on their path towards college. With the many speed bumps that a student might face during their academic journey, you can help students maintain the grades that they need to be college eligible. Dedicate your time to tutoring and mentoring our students so that they feel confident when entering college.

Family Engagement Volunteers

The moment a student joins First Graduate® we make a commitment not only to them but to their family as well. Our active Parent Association supports our dedicated FG parents that, just like their kids, are navigating the education system. Help strengthen the relationships that FG staff has with student families.

Skill-Based Volunteers

You can add expertise to First Graduate’s fundraising and marketing strategies and implementation. Since we are still a fairly small organization, volunteers with experience in website development, Salesforce, digital media, marketing, and videography are highly encouraged to apply.

Long-Term Volunteer Opportunities

For volunteer opportunities that are long-term, such as Coach 3.0, Middle School Mentor, College Essay Coach, and any skill-based opportunities, all interested volunteers  attend a specific info session and orientation
