It is a great idea for students to volunteer at nonprofit organizations.  This volunteering will not only help students get paying jobs, it will also help to get scholarships, and help students get admitted in to colleges and universities.  Students are not required to turn in Service Learning Logs for graduation, but all students can keep track of their own volunteer hours by keeping a Volunteer Notebook or Folder with all of the hours volunteered.  This way it will be easy to pull out that information when students are applying for a job, a scholarship, or for college.

College admissions counselors and scholarship committie members look for sustained volunteering over a long period of time to demonstrate both passion and committment. Students can volunteer at non-profit organizations (for example the Red Cross, public libraries, museums, Boys and Girls Clubs, Police PAL sites, elementary and middle schools, sports groups like AYSO and Pop Warner, and the Special Olympics).  You may not volunteer at a for-profit business.  You are not to provide free labor for such places as an office, grocery store, department store, or restaurant.

Remember to keep your completed Student Service Learning Logs in a safe place, like a three-ring binder, so that you can access it easily when you are filling out scholarship or college applications.:
