Guidelines

    • Students are required to have at least 25 hours of QUALIFIED service learning hours.
      • Some pre-approved organizations and opportunites can be found on the Pre-Approved Opportunities webpage.  If you find another non-profit, 501c3 organization, those hours would also qualify for your NAHS Service Learning Graduation Requirement. Please confirm any other opportunities you may find with Mr. McNichols in F-201 BEFORE fore beginning.  If you complete hours without confirming they qualify, they may not count towards your graduation requirement.
    • Students will NOT get credit for working at a "for-profit" business (even if they tell you they'll give you service learning hours and not pay you!!).  Contact the service learning coordinator with potential extenuating circumstances to be considered if you feel they apply.
    • Students are encouraged to provide service both within and outside the New Albany area.
    • Students may not count opportunities that they are already required/expected to attend by a coach or adviser, especially when this concerns fundraisers, etc.
    • Any service hours earned by participating in NAPLS school sponsored service learning opportunities must be served after normal school hours unless a formal written proposal is presented to the service learning coordinator and extenuating circumstances apply.
    • Students may not work for family members.
    • Students may not receive payment or be compensated in any way for their service.
    • Students may work at different agencies to fulfill the service hours requirement
    • Students must provide their own transportation to and from the activity/facility.
    • Students are encouraged to talk to family, friends and teachers to determine the most satisfying volunteer experiences for the individual student.
