This website is a new and exciting resource for high school students who are looking to get involved in social initiatives or earn community service hours for the 40 hour requirement for graduation.
The website is a 5-10-20 campaign, where students will be able to select volunteer opportunities based on how many hours they'd like to put in - 5 hours, 10 hours, or 20 hours. We've also created step-by-step guides for students who are interested in creating their own community service projects based on their interests, skills, and passions.
