Choosing Your Community Service Hours

In order for a community service activity to count towards your 20 hours, it must meet the following criteria:

  • Activity must be done through an established organization: a registered 501c3 non-profit organization, a public library, a public school, or a student organization such as Key Club or Student Senate. View a list of suggested organizations or check the calendar of community service opportunities.
  • Students must be able to explain how the activity has a positive impact on the community at large. Students should be able to answer the following questions: What group of people benefited from the activity? How were they helped? How is this good for the Las Vegas community overall?
  • Students cannot be paid or earn course credit for the activity.
