Volunteer hours in organization
Answered

Let's say I want to create a non-profit organization in tutoring.

I'm working on posters and a website to get students.

How do I make sure to keep track of it for College? If I log my hours tutoring, there's no adult to sign them off for me. Is the best thing I can do for college to just say that i created this organization and i've tutored this many people so far?

Is there a place where I'm supposed to establish it as a non-profit organization, since it's a free tutoring site? Do I need to do anything else?

Luckily, keeping track of your extracurriculars is not something you have to worry about. Colleges will take your word on the time you spent and impact you made through your non-profit. Adding your website URL to your activities list will provide them with more than enough evidence of your commitment to the non-profit.

Legal requirements are the only thing to think about here. As another answer mentions, registering your non-profit is an excellent idea to build credibility. Double check your state's laws on working with minors as well - some states will want you to get a background check before tutoring them. Hope this helps!
