Community Service

 


All Santa Clara Unified students must complete and document 20 hours of community service as part of the graduation requirements. Opportunities will be posted as received. Please see the Community Service Bulletin in the Counseling Office for more details.

Download a Confirmation of Hours Worksheet from the News on the right.

 

What is the purpose of the community service?

The purpose of Community service is to provide students the opportunity to have a positive impact on our local community. Volunteer work for high school students can be a life-changing experience, one that allows teens to expand their horizons and foster meaningful relationships.  Students are also able to build their resume and skills, which they can include in their college and scholarship applications/interviews.

 

What qualifies as community service?

  • Community service hours must be completed at a non-profit organization.
  • A student may volunteer for a single organization or at a variety of organizations.
  • Students are encouraged to complete their hours in areas related to their personal interests.
  • Paid experiences do not qualify.
  • Working without pay at your job or for a family business does not qualify.
  • Students cannot earn hours for donating items or money...only their time. 

Community service opportunities are posted on the Community Service page on school loop.  Students can also inquire about community service opportunities in the counseling office before school, lunch and after school. 

 

How do I prove my community service hours?

Students must complete a Confirmation of Hours form and a Reflection for each activity completed. A supervisor's signature is required on each form.  The parent of a student may not sign as the supervisor.  Verification forms are located in the Counseling Office and School loop. Forms must be submitted and turned into the Counseling Office.  Hours earned over summer should be turned in at the beginning of the school year in August.The deadline for submitting community service hours is two weeks before prom. SENIORS... DO NOT WAIT TILL THE LAST MINUTE!
