This past semester presented itself with a plethora of new challenges including discovering new ways to volunteer. Because of the coronavirus pandemic, participating in community service may have seemed like an impossible feat. However, students across the country, found unique ways to continue to serve while remaining, primarily, at home.
When logging and recording service hours served by students, it's vital for admins to have confidence that the hours were completed as stated, not falsified and ultimately accurate. Not only does acceptance into clubs and groups depend on students completing a specific number of hours, but, many times, it's a graduation requirement, a class grade and can impact scholarships as well as college admissions.
Students in schools around the country are serving their communities. The students at KIPP Atlanta Collegiate in Atlanta, Georgia, are no different. These students have a school requirement of 140 hours, but often go far beyond even the school requirement to log hundreds of hours of service to their community.
The semester is coming to a close and will be over before you know it! Along with finals, graduation prep and standardized testing, it's also the time to wrap up organizing and reporting on your students' volunteer hours in x2VOL and start preparing for the fall.
Get started now and get ahead of the game. Follow these x2VOL end of school year best practices and make your job and life that much easier.
