For the Stanford application, you have to indicate the contact name and phone number for all of your post-college extracurricular activities. Are they actually going to call them? I'm only asking this, because there was an activity I was involved in over a year ago, where I know that the contact person is no longer at with the organization. I have no idea where he has since moved on to, since I also stopped volunteering there.
They may call some of your contacts, but if they don't find your contact person at the organization, they will either contact you and ask you to explain or ask the organization to verify your participation through some other means.
