From Quora: My Answer to "Can an organization I’m volunteering for write a letter of recommendation instead of a teacher for college?"
Read the instructions in the application booklet/on the college’s website. They will tell you from whom you can get a reference. Many colleges really do want you to get recommendations from people other than your teachers, as well as from your teachers, so you probably can use a recommendation from the organization. But check first- not following directions is a REALLY good reason for a college to reject your application.
