Bonner volunteers

Get Involved


A number of Bonner community partner teams and sites welcome additional volunteers. Students who volunteer alongside Bonner Scholars are called Bonner Volunteers (B-Vols). B-Vols are able to serve on a regular or occasional basis, and we often reach out to these students when we have large projects or last-minute needs. Bonner Volunteers become instrumental members of our site teams, and often apply to the Bonner Community Scholars programs after serving with the Institute for a year.
