Community Service

Community Services Guidelines

  • Service must be voluntary, unpaid and on the student own time, not during school hours.
  • There must be a service agency, or a supervisor with a representative who can contacted to confirm service and sign form.
  • The Service Agency Representative cannot be the student, or a relative of the student.
  • The service is performed outside of one's family, i.e. babysitting, housecleaning, caring for a grandparent, helping a neighbor etc. are not eligible. They are being a good person.
  • The service is conducted for a nonprofit agency such as a youth sports program, community program (YMCA), Recreation Department, Boy Scouts, EOC, Area Agency on Aging, the Children's Museum, etc.
  • Extracurricular activities such as participating in a sport or activity not offered by the school does not qualify (club sports, Boy Scout meetings, 4- H meetings, piano recitals, dance performances).
  • Internships and political campaigns are not considered community service. Organizing a voter registration drive is.
  • Just because you work for free, does not mean it is community service. If you work for a business, a doctor, etc., you are not performing community service. To be sure your hours will count, work for NON-PROFIT organizations. Places like the YMCA or senior citizen homes are ideal.
  • Performing religious activities, like singing in a church choir, do not count for community service. If the choir goes to perform for a senior citizens home, that is  community service.
  • A fundraising activity is not considered community service unless the money is being collected for a non-profit charity.
  • The maximum amount of service hours a student can earn in one 24 hour period is twelve (12) hours.
