  2. snap a photo of the form and email it to info@crosbyscholarsiredell.org

  4. send via US mail

  6. turn it into your school counseling office
  7. text it to the office cell at 704.519.7155

Students enrolled in the program may start hours for the next school year as soon as the current due date has passed. For example, current juniors may start hours for their senior year on Feb. 1, 2020. Current 6th-10th graders may start hours for next year on April 1, 2020.

Community service should be done with a non-profit agency. Or, it can be an activity that benefits a non-profit agency. During the period of social distancing, we are allowing students to do service at home or with relatives. Examples include painting, cleaning, cooking, grocery shopping, etc.

Examples of volunteer work that counts:

  • Community service done with:
    • scout groups
    • Beta Club
    • National Honor Society
    • JROTC
    • church groups (not regular worship activities)
    • Young Achievers
    • other clubs
    • Crosby Scholars
  • Planning and organizing events to benefit a charity or non-profit

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 staff reserves the right to determine if a community service activity fulfills our requirement.

Missing Deadlines

Missing deadlines may result in the loss of program benefits. For example, seniors may not be eligible for certain scholarships. Students might not be recognized (with certificates, for example) at school programs. Finally, late forms may cause the student to not be continually enrolled in the program.
