Community Service

Click here to access community service forms.

The Student Application and Community Service Plan must be completed once per student. The Agency Application and Record of Volunteer Service Hours can be completed multiple times. A few things to remember: complete the forms in pen, fill out every section, get contact signatures on every completed line and on the bottom of the records form. Incomplete paperwork will be returned to the student and not logged until returned completed. Summer hours should be turned in within the first month of school. Community service is not required for graduation but can help students earn scholarships and looks great on a resume.
