Volunteer Opportunities

Volunteers have always been a critical component in the success of On Point for College’s programs and students. Since our inception in 1999, over 250 individuals of all ages and backgrounds have volunteered their time and talents for On Point, many of whom remain active with us today.

Note: On Point for College does not operate using a peer-to-peer advising model. Undergraduate students may volunteer as tutors and take part in other behind-the-scenes tasks. College students in need of volunteer opportunities for academic credit may apply and will be accepted on a case-by-case basis. At this time, we cannot offer volunteer opportunities to students still attending high school.
