Community Service Objectives

The objective of volunteerism and community service while at CCHS is to develop and instill a lifelong commitment to and responsibility for the needs and welfare of others and society as a whole. This commitment is its own reward. However, it is important that individual students and their peers appreciate the extraordinary efforts that many students make towards this responsibility of giving back. For this reason, there are many organizations within the communities of Concord and Carlisle who annually recognize individual students for various reasons. While the requirement for graduation from CCHS is 40 hours of service in 4 years, many students devote considerably more time, and it is important that students document and record this time, so that appropriate recognitions can be made. Below are some of the community service awards given annually.

President’s Volunteer Service Awards

Given by the President of the United States to recognize the best in American spirit and to encourage all Americans to improve their communities through volunteer service and civic participation.

Beginning in 2014, these Awards were divided into various age categories. CCHS students can apply for either a Teen Award for service completed before turning 16, or a Young Adult Award for service completed after age 16. Students are eligible for consideration for the Teen award if they have demonstrated outstanding volunteer service over the course of any consecutive 12-month period, in 3 categories: Bronze for 50-75 hours of service in a 12 month period, Silver for 75-100 hours, and Gold for 100 or more hours. Students are eligible for consideration for the Young Adult Award for service of 100-175 hours (Bronze), 175-250 hours (Silver) and over 250 hours (Gold), respectively.

Note that the important distinction between Teen and Young Adult awards is when the service was completed. Students whose service crosses the age boundary should apply for the Young Adult Award and use the corresponding requirements. This award is a self-nominating process. Questions about the Award should be directed to 2Volunteer by the student. All service must be documented and verifiable. The student must fill out the reflection portion of this application.

The 2Volunteer Committee is the designated certifying organization and uses the following criteria in choosing recipients:

  • The impact the service has on others
  • How it may affect your personal growth and life choices
  • How it benefits the community both inside and outside of CCHS
  • Hours must be done for a non-profit organization

Apply on line by March 15 or September 30 to be eligible for consideration for this award. September 30 applicants will be notified by October 15, to facilitate inclusion in college applications. All certificates will be presented in person at the Spring Awards Night.

Please note that applicants are responsible for monitoring their CCHS email accounts for any notification and/or questions from 2Volunteer about their applications. A student is eligible for a TEEN award if the service is performed prior to the age of 16.

FAQ’s about the President’s Volunteer Service Award:

Does the 12 month period have to begin in January and run through December? No, the service can be performed in any part of a calendar year and it does not have to be performed every month.

Do I have to have 50 (for Teen) or 100 (for Young Adult) hours? Yes, that is the minimum requirement to receive an Award.

How will the service be verified? You will need a contact name for each place you perform community service.

Do I have to do all my community service at the same place? No, definitely not. At 2Volunteer we feel that often there can be more meaningful experiences by interacting with many agencies and communities and by experiencing different volunteer opportunities.

If I miss the deadline of September 30 or March 15, will I still be eligible? If you miss the September deadline your application will be processed with the March applications. If you miss the March deadline then your application will be processed with the following September applications.  Nominations take time to verify and process so the deadline allows time to ensure they can be presented at Spring Awards Night.

Is any CCHS student eligible? Yes, any student in any grade may be nominated.

When are Awards presented and must I be present to accept it? Awards are presented at the Community Service Awards Night in the Spring, but you do not have to be present to accept the Award.
