APRIL 19, 2023
What is the Crosby Scholars community service requirement?
Each Crosby Scholar in 6th through 10th grade must complete two (2) or more hours of community or volunteer service each school year. This service should be done at a not-for-profit organization or program, and students should submit the online community service form to document their hours.
Students should not be paid, or receive a grade for their volunteer service, and due to our non-profit status, we cannot accept volunteer hours from students for working on campaigns of specific candidates during the election season.
Need ideas for Community Service or want to know how we define Community Service? Visit the community service page on our website to view a list of available community service opportunities.
Contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org. If you have questions about whether your community service idea meets the requirement for the Program, please contact the Crosby Scholars Program. Crosby Scholars Program staff reserves the right to determine if a community service activity fulfills our requirement.
Community Service Contests and Highlights
The Middle School Program hosts several community service contests throughout the year.
Check out the Student Community Service feature box on our website for volunteer ideas, opportunities, community service forms, and more!
After submitting your community service hours, please allow 24 to 48 hours for your community service form to be processed. Community Service hours are recorded in your Student Portal once they are processed.
Don't forget what YOU offer the community as a Crosby Scholar. Your active volunteering makes a difference. Want your service to be highlighted? Send a picture of you volunteering with a brief quote about what you did to email@example.com and you might see it on our social media channels!
