Community Service

Community Service

Glendale High students are encouraged to perform at least 75 hours of community service during their four years of high school. Even though it is not a graduation requirement, students who achieve this level of service and submit the appropriate forms will receive the GHS Community Service Award when they graduate.

The educational benefits of volunteering include: 

  • Developing personal and social responsibility
  • Promoting respect and understanding of the people and cultures in our community
  • Exploring career opportunities
  • Developing character and skills for successful citizenship

Seniors: The deadline to turn in your Senior hours is the second week of April. 

Volunteer hour forms for 9th, 10th and 11th graders are due on the last day of school.  

Only a signature from an adult supervising the activity will qualify for the volunteer service performed. Also, before you turn in your volunteer hours form to Ms. Orozco, make sure you make a copy of the form. If have any questions, please contact Ms. Orozco,  or stop by Room 1110.
