Community service hours performed at a place of worship will be accepted for those events that involve outreach programs such as VBS or mission trips. Hours may not be submitted for helping with things that are part of being a member of a worship community, ie. singing in the choir, teaching Sunday School, helping in the office, etc.
Week-long events, such as mission trips or camps, will be credited for a maximum of 40 hours per week (8 hours per work day). If the student stays in a cabin and is responsible for campers overnight as well as during the day, more hours may be credited.
A student who participates in a “walk” or a “run” will receive one hour of credit. If the student works at such an event, e.g., working a water station or helping with set-up, the student can receive credit for all of the hours worked.
A student who donates blood can submit two hours for credit.
Community service hours will not be given for time spent working in a political office or on a political campaign.
Please note: The above information is not inclusive. Therefore, if a student is not sure that the site or event they have selected will fit the FWCD guidelines, the student should obtain prior approval on the Site Authorization Form from the FWCD Coordinator to avoid misunderstanding and to assure that the hours worked will be credited toward the FWCD graduation requirement.
