Community service at Raisbeck Aviation High School allows high school students to interact and get involved with their community. There are many different opportunities to consider as students begin to give back and accumulate hours of service such as, adopting a highway, relays for life, working at a food bank, or volunteering at homeless shelters or animal shelters. Additionally students will learn about other organized community service efforts through school and may choose to participate in the service with classmates.
Examples of things that do not qualify as community service hours include working for money or gifts (excluding food), court or school ordered punishments, ASB or club required activities, and babysitting. If there are questions about whether an activity is eligible for community service hours, students should ask a staff member in the Career/Counseling Center.
During high school, students are required to complete 10 hours of community service each year. By the end of the senior year each student would have participated in 40 hours of community service; their participation must be documented on the Community Service Hours Register form(s). These forms are located in the Career/Counseling Center or you can submit a form electronically to Ms. Olsen. Electronic forms can be found here.
If a student decides to do more than the required amount of community service hours, the student may receive recognition.
