Community Service


Look below for the forms!

Community service projects are planned, organized, and voluntary efforts designed to address a problem or need in the community. To be meaningful, community service projects must address a real need or problem found within your community.

The community service project you choose should also reflect your personal interests and skills. In addition, worthwhile community service projects require an on-going commitment on your part. Additionally, all hours completed should be done at a non-for-profit agency.

A minimum of 100 hours of community service are required for graduation.

The requirement for the highest level of award from Bright Futures is 100 hours.
