Dozens of seniors are busy this summer completing their Senior Service Requirement of 40 hours. Many seniors are working with children in a church or educational setting, visiting the elderly, attending special needs camps as 1-1's at a variety of agencies.
Although the senior graduation requirement is 40 hours, 10 of the 40 can be completed at STA summer athletic camps, Feed My Starving Children, Eagle Scout projects, community youth sports camps, etc. Many seniors complete the final 10 hours of volunteer service during senior year participating on popular opportunities that involve the Honor Guard, Thanksgiving Meals on Wheels, STA Admissions Events, etc.
That leaves 30 hours of service described as "direct-care" service to children, the elderly, special-needs populations, special-needs youth camps, church youth activities, and service oriented mission trips.
If you have any questions about whether your service is with an approved agency, email Mr. Seidel at email@example.com.
Once the agency minimum of 30 hours is completed, an agency rep (not a student or parent) should email Mr. Seidel to confirm the completed service. That student will then be eligible for next May's Senior Project Lottery number assignment to be held in mid-September for those that did service this summer.
Students are NOT required to complete their 40 hours this summer. The deadline for the senior requirement is March 1, 2020.
