My teacher asked me to correct only grammatical mistakes about the underlined parts and I wonder if my way of correcting the mistakes are correct.

original sentence: Most universities offer different opportunites getting volunteering involvement.

--> my suggestion 1: ............... oppotunities to get volunteering involvement. or .... to get volunteer involvement.

original sentence: Most universities offer different opportunities for involvement in volunteering.

---> my suggestion:............. opportunites for involvement in volunteer.

Your second example* isn't right. The second original sentence is correct.

* That is, your last example, not the second correction to your first example.

Are you saying that the original sentence ' Most universities offer.... for involvement in volunteering' is correct? Then, what about the first original sentence and my way of correcting it, such as ...... .. to get volunteering involvment or to get volunteer involvemnet? It it correct? I am very confused. Need your clear explanation. Thanks in advance.

Yes, I'm saying that sentence is correct, and your correction isn't.
Your first example is correct enough.
