AVID Community Service Requirements
As an AVID student, you are required to have 10 hours of community service each semester. A minimum of 80 total
hours are required for students to receive an AVID stole. You may spread out these hours among different
organizations/opportunities, but for each different type of volunteering, you will need to complete a separate Community
Service Reflection form. This is so that you will have a written record of each unique experience (eventually, you will use
these to develop your resume and on college/scholarship applications).
AVID Community Service Log
Students will be given a community service log to keep track of hours served or worked.
The service log includes:
• Date of Event
• Start Time/End Time
• Total Hours
• Location/Tasks Performed
• Supervisor’s position and signature
AVID Community Service Reflection Form
For each different type of volunteering, you will need to complete a separate community service reflection form.
The reflection form includes:
• Dates of service
• Total hours spent
• How did this experience help you grow?
• What did you learn about yourself?
• What did you like/dislike?
• Special memories?
• New skills or challenges?
How to Acquire Community Service
Service activities can be completed at school or in the community. Students are not permitted to work for their family in
any capacity to fulfill these service hours. We are encouraging students to seek out new experiences and find activities
that they are passionate about or in fields they are interested in. (ex. If a student wants to be a nurse, they could look for
volunteer opportunities at a hospital.)
AVID Community Service examples:
• God’s Pantry
