Each AVID student is required to complete 5 hours of unpaid volunteer/community service hours each quarter. Our goal is to turn our scholars into well-rounded humans who are academic but also focused on improving their communities. In addition to being a person who thinks about others, many scholarship and college applications ask for evidence of community involvement.

It is the student’s responsibility to provide documentation of all hours and provide verification through an adult signature. Use the log below to do so. Hours do not roll over from quarter to quarter.

AVID Volunteer Log

It is also the student’s responsibility to set up all volunteering opportunities unless your AVID teacher provides information through the blog/class. The student should contact the organization or supervisor, ask to speak with someone about volunteering opportunities, and then follow through with doing what he/she committed to do.
