Hello. My organization is an internet company that matches people who want penpals to each other. The organization has worked historically with schools, but it is not an educational institution. I could not find anything general under service organization. 


I am stumped as to what to put for category and thus cannot get myself registered on Google.


Any pertinent suggestions be helpful.

I can't imagine your organization meetsyour customers / clients / partners "in person"


But this is the main criteria in order to be eligible for a GoogleMyBusuiness listing.


I therefore recommend you to restrict on a plain G+ page rather then a GMB listing to get verified.
