STUDENT COMMUNITY SERVICE

2018-19  Deadlines:

Grades 11 - 12:  January 31, 2019
Grades 6 - 10:  March 31, 2019

Crosby Scholars are required to complete two hours of community service, although five are recommended for high school students. Scholars must submit a form documenting their hours that includes a signature of the person in charge of the service activity by the deadline noted above. Click here for the form.

Where to find a form: in your student portal, scroll to the bottom where it says "Resources".  There is a form available to download in that section.  Your school counselor may also be able to get a form for you.

The form can be submitted various ways:

  • turn it in to your school counseling office
  • drop it off at the Crosby Scholars office
  • upload the form to the My Documents page (drop down of My Crosby page) of your Crosby Scholars student portal
  • take a picture of the form and email it to info@crosbyscholarsiredell.org
  • fax it to 704.873.4891
  • send via US mail

Scholars who completed the Crosby Scholars Program during the previous school year may count hours volunteered after the previous year's deadline, including summer volunteer hours, toward the following school year's requirement.

Community service is ideally performed with a non-profit agency or be an activity that benefits a non-profit agency. The volunteer commitment can be fulfilled through scouts, school clubs, civic organizations, and/or certain church activities. While membership in a club or organization does not count as service, volunteering in the community in a club-sponsored activity does. For example, being a member of a youth choir doesn't count, but singing at a nursing home with the choir qualifies as service hours. If you have questions about whether your community service idea meets the requirement for the Program, please contact Crosby Scholars at 704.873.5005. Crosby Scholars Program staff reserves the right to determine if a community service activity fulfills our requirement.

The following service opportunities are submitted by local agencies and organizations. They are options only and certainly not the only community service activities available to Crosby Scholars.
