GROVES COMMUNITY SERVICE

Volunteer. It's good for you.


THE COMMUNITY NEEDS YOU!
There are many organizations looking for volunteers just like YOU! A list of Community Service Opportunities is available
HERE. You will find a list of opportunities as well as instructions on how to connect to them. Make your summer matter--volunteer!

There are lots of places to get involved:
Summer in the City is a great place to make a difference and stay busy this summer. SITC places volunteers with nonprofit organizations in Detroit all summer. Volunteers are used June through August on Tuesday through Friday each week. A SITC van picks up student volunteers from Groves each of those days at 8:45 am, delivers them to a service assignment, and returns them to Groves at 2:00 pm. All you need to do is visit: http://www.summerinthecity.com/ to sign up!

Also consider working at the Birmingham Bloomfield Art Center, Groves Camp for Students with Autism, Groves Community Garden, and more!


Overview of Groves Service Requirement:
Students are required to complete 10 hours of service during the trimester that they take Health class. Additional hours are also required for membership in the National Honors Society, and service projects are often supported through classrooms, teams, and other school groups. All of this involvement helps develop you as a community steward and increases your appeal to NHS, scholarship boards, leadership opportunities, employers, future colleges, and more! Extensive service also makes you eligible for the President's Volunteer Service Award.

THE PRESIDENT WANTS TO HONOR YOU!
The President’s Council on Service and Civic Participation created the President’s Volunteer Service Award
as a way to thank and honor Americans who, by their demonstrated commitment and example, inspire others to engage in volunteer service. This award recognizes individuals that have achieved a certain number of hours served over a 12 month period. Any student in grades 9-12 who has made a significant impact in meeting the needs of their community by completing over 100 hours of service may apply for this award. Award recipients receive a certificate, award pin, and letter from the President. Applications instructions are available HERE and will reference hours completed from January 2013 through December 2013.

Please take a peek Birmingham’s Community Ed 
page for additional learning opportunities:
