Become A Volunteer

Education First is comprised of a diverse group of volunteers who work together toward a common goal: Improving the lives of disadvantaged students through college scholarships and mentoring.

Our volunteers contribute in a wide variety of ways. They select scholars, mentor students, raise money, plan events, work on national initiatives, and more. Regardless of the activity, our volunteers work together as a team to make a difference.

We value our volunteers’ time and effort, and we provide our volunteers with opportunities to expand their perspectives, skill sets, and networks. You can make a difference. Enrich the lives of students by becoming a volunteer in one of the following cities today:

Our regional activities are divided into the five focus areas listed below. Often, an individual volunteer is assigned to each area, but in many cases the local team opt to divide the workload differently.

If you are not interested in any of the listed roles but still share a passion for the mission of Education First, please let us know as we have a need for a variety of skill sets.

Where Are They Now?

Thank you for the support you provided me during my time at California State University, Los Angeles, and for helping me to become the first one in my family to obtain a Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering. I got hired by the Los Angeles Department of Water and Power a few weeks after finishing with school. My achievements were possible by your help and support. Thank you so much.
