Community Service

We encourage our students to develop a sense of responsibility for others within their community. Beginning with the 2016-17 school year, Seminole County Public Schools has revised its process for students to identify, document, and submit volunteer service hours. This process has been designed to comply with recent changes to Florida law regarding the type of service eligible for the award of Bright Futures scholarships. Please note the following information:


Volunteer Service Process - Students must follow these steps to earn service hours:

  1. Identify a social or civic issue or a professional area of interest and contact an organization related to the topic of your interest and discuss options for volunteer service.
  2. Complete the SCPS Student Volunteer Service Plan and Volunteer Service log below:
    It is the student's responsibility to maintain copies of all documents, including the signed community service application. Begin volunteering and record hours on the SCPS Volunteer Service Work Log. It is the student's responsibility to record and maintain service hours log sheet.
  3. At the conclusion of the required volunteer hours, the student must submit the original Volunteer Service Application, the Volunteer Service Log(s), and a one-page typed reflective essay that includes why the topic and service site(s) were chosen, the duties performed, and what was learned/gained from the experience. One essay may address experiences at multiple sites.
