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.

If you are interested in becoming a Bonner Volunteer, please look at TCNJ LionsGate Bonner Volunteers, call 609-771-2548, or visit the Bonner Institute located in Forcina Hall, Room 337.
