COMMUNITY SERVICE REQUIREMENT

All students at BHS must complete 40 hours of community service for graduation. The community service requirement allows students to apply their growing skills and knowledge to community issues and problems.  Students learn the responsibility citizens have in a democratic society.

Students generally complete the requirement by providing volunteer work for non-profit organizations operating in the Burlington community.  Students cannot get paid for their work, nor can they fill a position that would normally be a paid job.  Many students already do community service through scouting and youth groups or volunteer work with local agencies.  Participating in the many area fund-raising walk-a-thons also earns students credit.  The United Way has a list of organizations needing help, including the Boys and Girls Club, COTS, the Sarah Holbrook Center, and the King Street Center. 

Community service hours can accumulate from the summer preceding ninth grade entrance through senior year, however, students should keep track of their hours and submit documentation each year to the Student Affairs Office. Students may not graduate until all Community Service hours are completed.
