You can begin serving your volunteer hours for the 2020-21 year immediately. You do not need pre-approval to volunteer. Please join the Leota NJHS Schoology group for the most up-to-date information about this club. Contact Amy Schlutz (email@example.com) to obtain the club Schoology group access code.
Service hours can be completed any time before March 31, 2021.
There will be one club meetings throughout the year from 11:10-11:50 on the 4th Wednesday of every month. If you choose to attend, the meeting will count toward ONE of your service hours. You will still be required to get at least 10 service hours.
In general, your service needs to be performed at a non-profit organization, and needs to be for underserved and/or disadvantaged populations (to include hospitals, day care facilities, schools, after school boys/girls clubs, homeless populations, eldercare, disabled individuals, animal rescue/care, environmental work, libraries, places of worship, veterans services, and more). Examples of activities that will NOT be considered a service include, but are not limited to, housing a foreign exchange student, participating in performances (such as ballet/dance, music recitals, etc.), helping your neighbor clean their yard, taking tests, playing sports, and other like activities. NOTE: Due to COVID-19 restrictions, at home community service hours will be accepted this year. At home community service hours are those which are done for others, for which no compensation (monetary or otherwise) has been given. These hours can and should be completed at home with proper social distancing and health guidelines. Students may volunteer within their own home and family unit outside of normal chores or responsibilities, and they do not need to volunteer with official organizations.
When you serve your community service hours, please remember you are representing Leota Middle School --- dress appropriately and be on your best behavior. Thank you for choosing to participate in this valuable club.
