Volunteer

BECOME A VOLUNTEER!

Do you have enthusiasm, reliability, and a passion for mentoring youth? If you have these important qualities and commitment to our students’ success,  then apply for one of our current volunteer opportunities!

why volunteer

Reality Changers’ mission is to provide youth from disadvantaged backgrounds with the academic support, financial assistance, and leadership training to become college graduates. The hours you contribute not only help the advancement of this mission, but help enrich the experience of our students through thoughtful and personal interactions. Your generosity of time and talent—no matter big or small—helps to transform a young person’s life for the better.

volunteer philosophy

Volunteers are an integral part of Reality Changers and partners in our work of creating access to college, one community at a time. Reality Changers is committed to providing our volunteers a rewarding and satisfying experience that offers opportunities for both professional growth and personal enrichment. We respect and encourage input from our volunteers and welcome the diversity and added capacity that they bring to our work at all levels.

volunteer opportunities

Reality Changers volunteers perform a broad range of functions in a variety of programs and/or departments. Each volunteer opportunity is different, and has its own unique set of responsibilities, time commitment, and skills. Many volunteer opportunities do not require previous experience working with youth, and we provide position-specific training.
