Earn Community Service Hours

Adults aren’t the only ones who are encouraged to get involved! By engaging in community service projects, students can earn credits and recognition at graduation, and qualify for scholarships.

Students provide more than 100,000 hours of service to Polk County every year through the community service program. Community service coordinators at each high school coordinate the application process and approve the hours and locations where students serve.

Ready to get involved? Start by contacting your high school Community Service Coordinator to register with the community service program. Community service hours served before registering with the program coordinator will not be counted. Service hours must be pre-approved before students begin to log hours.
