R. W. Traip Academy COMMUNITY SERVICE VERIFICATION FORM Community service is work performed in service to one’s community. Students must accrue a minimum of 10 hours of service each year. Community service is part of the Traip Academy Program of Studies, and it is a Traip Academy graduation requirement. The community service requirement may be completed independently or in small groups. Advisors will regularly monitor student progress toward the community service requirement. The service must be executed while the student is enrolled at Traip Academy (including weekends, school vacations, and summer break). Just about any community service project initiated by a non-profit organization is acceptable, but the final determination will be made by a student’s advisor with consultation by the school administration. Pre-approval of the project is urged since not all proposals will qualify. Work done for a student’s immediate family is not community service (it is being part of a family!). To receive credit for community service, a student must first complete a Community Service Verification Form (obtained from the Advisor or the Main Office) prior to the project for approval. Once the project is complete, the student must submit the form again to his/her advisor.

Why Community Service? The benefits of having a community service component to the Traip Academy graduation requirements are numerous. By requiring students to complete community service, we are helping students to gain a heightened awareness of the issues in their community. With the frenetic pace of a teenager's life, it is important for Traip Academy students to take a moment from time to time to take the blinders off and become aware of life around them. With social networking, people are sometimes more aware of the global community than they are of the community in which they live. Engaging in community service can help to cultivate compassion and understanding for others. Requiring students to complete community service also helps to build people skills. Talking appropriately and constructively with adults in the community is a skill that is all too often lost on high school students. Along those same lines, engaging in community service also helps students to meet new people with similar and differing interests. There is no better way to meet people than to mobilize around a common interest. Finally, community service has the potential to help students utilize a special skill like using technology or a special talent like dance. Serving others in a deliberate way can also help students explore potential career options. Many times, community service may lead to potential part-time employment. It is a great way for a student to get his/her foot in the door! (revised 09/09/16 EFW)
