As of 3/12/2020, Community Service is postponed until further notice.
Please make sure to communicate to your supervisor that you will not be attending if your service site is still open.
Further details will be sent out to you via email soon. If you have any questions, please email Ms.Ajaka (firstname.lastname@example.org).
For your service hours to be counted you must have the following forms on file in the service office:
- Yellow Student Data Sheet (for each place you commit to doing weekly service at)
- Green Supervisor Commitment Document (for each place you commit to doing weekly service at)
- Blue Parent/Student Commitment Form
Every year, even for the same organization, committed service begins earning credit after the green / yellow forms are submitted.
0 documents = 0 credit!
By the end of each semester, you must have completed 20 service hours for the outside community.
