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.

There are lots of places to get involved (details are on the list linked above):
BCS Math Help - Thursdays after-school
Help tutor middle school students at BCS from 3:20-4:10 every Thursday. Tutors can commit to short term or long term service!


Zoo Boo at the Detroit Zoo - Fri's/Sat's/Sun's in Oct (4-10 pm)
Help celebrate this merry, not scary, event for young children during evenings in October. Information on who to contact can be found on the volunteer list above.

Greening of Detroit - Saturday, November 1st
Join a team of volunteers from Groves as they plant trees in Detroit with Greening of Detroit. Over 175 trees will be planted by the 150 volunteers that join Greening of Detroit that day!

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 2014 through December 2014.

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