A student may do all the Youth Service Learning hours in one year, although it is recommended to spread the 85 hours over the four years of high school. The 85 hours may be done in one single project or they may be done from several projects. A student may begin doing Youth Service Learning after 8th grade graduation. Youth Service Learning projects may be done as an individual, with another student or with a group of students. Hours are not done for pay, for family, or on school time. Community Service projects must be approved before starting project(s). Hours must be turned in within two weeks of the projects completion. Hours turned in after the two weeks will be worth half credit.
