Community Service

CJSF Community/School Service Hours

 You are going to Record your hours of volunteer service on this paper. Remember that you need 6 hours of community service. You are required to do 4 of those 6 hours to help different teachers at E.O. Green. You also need to undertake 3 different types of volunteer work signed by 2 different adults. So, for example, you cannot have 5 hours of just babysitting. Remember to count only work that you are “not” paid or compensated for. Tutoring a family member or friend, for example, is community service. Hours at a volunteer center or a church-affiliated group are great. Coaching a sport or helping out a needy neighbor also qualifies. Assisting anyone in need is, basically, good volunteer service. You MUST maintain a 3.5 GPA at end of every grading period…
