Community Service

You feel pretty amazing inside when someone smiles after you do the smallest thing to help them. Now imagine the smiles of a whole community after you help with a Community Service project. It’s unforgettable.

As a student, you participate in a variety of community service events throughout the year.  We’ve cleaned up parks, painted community centers, read to local children, assisted with community events, and much more!

Through the National Corporation of Community Service, you may be co-enrolled as an AmeriCorps Member. Through this program, you’ll complete 450 hours of community service. Upon completion, you’ll earn an AmeriCorps Education Award worth $1,450! Over 40 students have received this award in the last two years.
