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.

Work to Make a Difference

Our volunteers contribute in a wide variety of ways. They select scholars, mentor students, raise money, plan events, work on national initiatives, and more.
