Community Service

Community Service is a graduation requirement for all SVHS students.

 


Community Service Agreement form


The minimum commitment is 60 hours over four years for an average of 15 hours per year. Students who have not been at SVHS for the full four years need only to complete community service hours for the years they have attended SVHS. Community Service hours must be completed by May 1st of the Senior year.

 

Service projects and activities are often a transforming element for the individual student as they have the potential to nurture and mold the global citizen. Service involves interaction such as the building of links with individuals or groups in the community. The community may be the school, the local district, or it may exist on national and international levels, such as undertaking projects of assistance in a developing country. Service activities should not only involve doing things for others but also doing things with others and developing a real commitment to them. The relationship should, therefore, show respect for the dignity and self-respect of others.

Community Service hours must be documented by completing the Community Service Agreement and Reflection Form (on the back). The Agreement must be signed by the supervisor of the activity, and the Agreement and Reflection Form must be on file in the Office of the Registrar.

 

Note:  Some service programs require training prior to being able to enter into service.  Training hours will not be applied to the Community Service graduation requirement.
