Senior service hours can be entered through the steps that are provided on the AVHS Counseling website.

The deadline for the community service hours this year at Amador Valley is May 1. Seniors have been working hard to complete the required hours for graduation. The requirement is to have a total of 20 hours of community service. 

Steps to take

First, students need to fill out a school contract and turn it into the main office. After the approval of the contract, the student may then begin working on their service hours. Vice Principal Mr. Jaramillo is the point of contact for questions or problems that students may encounter. 

“Working at the garden wasn’t easy at all. Me and my friend had to pull the weeds which was very tiring. But overall it was a new experience so I would say it was worth it. I learned so much throughout the time I completed my hours, I feel like I became more patient,” said Arely Tellez (‘24).

The AVHS Counseling website offers a list of pre-approved places and available opportunities where students can go and help out. Before going to the available locations, it is necessary to contact the person who is responsible for that organization. If a student wants to go to an organization that is not provided on the website, approval is needed first.

“The experience was really fun, I expected it to be hard and I was really nervous at first, but as soon as I got the hours done, I was so relieved,” said Katie O’Sullivan (‘24).

The student should then have the documentation form in person at their volunteer location. With the document, the organization can verify the completed hours and comment on student behavior as well. For each organization, you will need a new copy of the same document.

“I think I took too long to do it, I tend to procrastinate a lot, so if I could give the seniors one piece of advice, I would tell them to get it done as soon as they can, ” said Tellez.

After getting the required hours, students have to turn in the documentation form to the main office. Good luck to all seniors getting their hours in!
