Community Service & Volunteerism
Community Service is defined as volunteer service beyond the confines of the traditional classroom that fosters civic responsibility for the benefit of the community. This service is non-paid, non-graded and non-punitive. Through this service, students will develop skills, career awareness, and self-esteem. The intent is to encourage students to be active and engaged members of their communities and to address important community issues. Service can unite neighbors, mobilize volunteers and encourage a lifelong ethic of public participation and is best performed in conjunction with a reputable public service organization.
