2020-21 Acalanes & President’s Volunteer Service Awards Program
Spring is the time for students to submit their volunteer service applications and now is the time to start getting organized! Given the limited volunteer opportunities, we reduced the service hour minimum to 20 hours to help more students qualify for the Acalanes Award. The President’s Volunteer Service award is a federal program and we cannot modify their minimum number of hours/program requirements.
We encourage students to be creative with ideas that can turn into volunteer opportunities while following guidelines to keep yourself, families and neighbors safe. Ideas to consider (verification of hours is still necessary):
- Grocery shopping or running errands for senior, disabled or at-risk neighbors
- Tutoring or Homework help (unpaid) for younger students in your neighborhood (non-family members)
- AHS Clubs focused on service such as Key Club, Children’s Hospital, Equip for Equality, Environmental, Asian Student Union, SAGE, Protect Animals Worldwide
If you have a great idea about a way to be of service in your community and want to see if it qualifies under the AHS program, email us! In the meantime, download the service award application forms here. Then submit completed, scanned applications between March 25 and April 10, 2021 to firstname.lastname@example.org.
