Community Service Overview

The R-7 School district instituted a 10 hours of community service graduation requirement for all high school students in 1992.
All community service projects are to be arranged by the student and pre-approved by the community service coordinator, Kara Farren. All projects posted on this site are pre-approved.  See general guidelines when trying to determine if a project will be accepted.
Many organizations have long standing community service projects. They welcome help on a continual basis. For ongoing community service projects, click here. Commonly, organizations will contact us to announce one-time projects. To find a project in a given month, simply click on the name of the month.


General Guidelines for Community Service Projects

Community Service is defined as volunteer work for which no other credit or monetary compensation is received. The work must be for a non-profit organization. Community service cards must be signed by a supervisor present at the project location.  All information on cards must be complete. Cards will not be accepted with a parent’s signature as the supervisor. The hours may be completed anytime starting with the Freshman year, and are to be finished by the end of the Senior year.
