Service Hour Goals
changes for the 2020-21 school year
For the 2020-2021 school year the Service Learning Program is adapting due to restrictions brought on by Covid 19. This year the program will ask students to look at their Service Learning Hours Goals as just that, a goal. We ask that all students try to meet their hours goal (see below) but no student will be penalized if she cannot do so. This year we are also broadening the types of activities count toward those hours. We are expanding the Service Learning Program to become a Social Impact Program so students can broaden the ways they make their mark on our world.
Through this Social Impact Program we strive to help students find their purpose by connecting them to the broader community. Through new and existing partnerships with St. Louis area organizations, the program allows students to engage with diverse partners, learn from civic leaders, tackle projects with community impact, and put their creative ideas into action for lasting social benefit. If you have any ideas or questions please reach out to her at firstname.lastname@example.org.The Social Impact program focuses on four pillars: for service learning, civic engagement, social justice and social entrepreneurship.
Students recognize the dignity of all people and use their voice to challenge systems that do not allow people to flourish in our society.
Students learn how to become involved in civic organizations, to learn about the process of government and the opportunities to get involved in the process.
Students are called to action that responds to areas of deep human need, challenges the dehumanizing aspects of her world, increases awareness of ecological concerns and promotes a just peaceful society.
Students participate in social entrepreneurship, which supports individuals with innovative solutions to society’s most pressing social, cultural, and environmental challenges while using business and collaborative strategies.
YEARLY SERVICE LEARNING Goals
For the 2020-21 School Year, we ask that all students try to meet the goals below. No student will be penalized if hours are not reached.
15 hours of service: 5 of which may be volunteer hours to the Nerinx community
20 hours of service: 10 of which may be volunteer hours to the Nerinx community
25 hours of service: 10 of which may be volunteer hours to the Nerinx community
30 hours of service with all hours completed outside of Nerinx.
This year we are moving to a new website called Mobile Serve for students to document their service hours. This website has some great features including an app that students will be able to use to quickly enter their service hours after they complete a service activity. This week they will be receiving an email with instructions to log in. Once they do this, they should be able to follow some simple steps to document the work they are completing. If any student is having trouble with the transition, she can reach out to Ms. Buchek for help. During the 2020-2021 school year, students will still have access to our old system to find their past service records.
