Service Program Requirements

OUR PROGRAM GOALS

  • We hope our students will have an experience that allows them to: develop a habit of giving back to their community, to step outside of their comfort zone and challenge themselves, to reflect on their experience, and to learn more about the population in which they served.
  • We also hope that the changes in our program will provide more flexibility for our families.

Important Additional Info:

  • All service hours can be completed virtually or in person for the 2021-2022 school year. 
  • Students can complete all required hours doing the same thing or they can mix and match. 
  • If students mix and match they only need to complete one Reflection Paragraph Form.
  • We are accepting almost anything as service hours for the 2021-2022 school year. There are only two things to keep in mind:
    • Students cannot get paid and then count it as service hours.
    • The service must pertain to someone outside of their immediate household.
