Community Service for Seniors '09

Every Foothill senior must have at least 20 hours of community service in order to graduate. Summer is a great time to start working on the requirement. The 20 hours must be completed by the time the senior finishes 12th-grade civics, a semester-long class.
See the files below for the form that must be signed by a supervisor any time a senior does community service work. There's also a file with a list of pre-approved groups for doing volunteer work. Students may volunteer with groups not listed, but they should check with teachers to make sure the groups fit within acceptable standards. The key to volunteering is to help a group that works toward improving society.
