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!
Please take a peek Birmingham’s Community Ed
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.
