Community Service Opportunities

Class of 2024, it's that time, you are about to become a SENIOR!!!  As a graduation requirement, all non-MCTI students must complete their Graduation Project.  One component of the graduation project entails community service.  You must do at least 8 hours of community service by August 25th, 2023.  **If you are going to complete your community service at the West End Fair, you must get administrative approval to override the due date of August 25th, 2023.  **This only applies to community service hours being completed at the West End Fair.***  A total of 30 hours are required for this project.  See the breakdown explanation below.

  • A total of 30 hours combined of community service and job shadow/intership must be completed by all non-MCTI students prior to the start of their senior school year.  
    • Seniors not enrolled in PVHS by the start of their senior year will meet with administration about clarification of this project completion.
  • The total of 30 hours MUST include 8 hours of community service, and 8 hours of the job shadow/internship.  The remaining hours (14), may consist of the student's choice, but must meet the required 30 hours requirement.

In order to help students achieve their goal for the community service component, we have listed some local organizations in our community that are willing to offer community service opportunities to our students.  In order to set-up your opportunity, you must call or email the contact to schedule your hours.  Remember, when emailing, please do not use your school email, it will be blocked by the recipient on most occasions.  Use a personal email please.
