Get Involved

Bonner Community Scholars at aYouth Development Institute event on the TCNJ campus.

A number of Bonner community partner teams and sites welcome additional volunteers. Students who volunteer alongside Bonner Scholars are called B-Vols (short for Bonner Volunteers). 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.If you are interested in applying, please contact B-Vol Coordinator Stephanie Kraver at You can also call (609-771-2679) or visit the Bonner Center – Forcina Hall, Room 337 – to obtain more information.
