Community Service Hours Information

Community Service Hours:

A total of 10 hours per semester are required to maintain your NHS membership in good standing.  At least 5 of those 10 hours must be completed/acquired from an NHS--approved activity/event (see below)..  Remaining hours may be acquired from any other community service activity that is approved by a signature or proof of participation..

For Fall 2020, service hours are due by December 2, 2020, at the latest.  The due date for Spring 2021, service hours will be posted here in Fall 2020.  If your service hours are not completed and turned in by the due date, your NHS membership status will be affected (you will not be considered a member in good standing).


Blank forms can be picked up in person from Mrs. Flynn in room 506 or you can download from this site (see below).



NOTE:  Following are some community service opportunities which are available to NHS members.  Summer hours do count towards your Fall community service hours requirement. 


* Math Center: See Mrs. Patey in room 503

* GHVS Campus Beautification Days:  Please check back with this website once the school year begins.  Dates/times to be determined.

* Any GVHS event held on campus is considered an NHS-approved activity/event for community service hours.  For example, if you wish to help out with an ASB event or volunteer to work a basketball game or help set up for a school dance... those are all considered NHS-approved activities/events.  You must coordinate with the teacher or advisor of that given event or activity in advance, get their approval for you to volunteer for the event, and get their signature on your community service hour sheet.


If you have any other questions about community service hours, please speak to an NHS officer or Mrs. Flynn.
