• Image result for community service 

    Many students in the Methacton School District are currently performing service in their community and school.  The Community Service Program was created as a way to reward students who are making a difference and being active in our society.
    • Students receive .25 credit for every 30 hours of documented service.
    • There is no limit to the number of hours or credit each year.
    • Community service credits can be used for elective credits for graduation, but cannot replace the minimum number of credits required for a student to take during a six day cycle.
    • Hours are cumulative.
    • Community Log Sheets and Summary forms need to be turned into the student's school counselor upon completion. Forms should be handed in for every 30 hours of completed service.  Partial credit will not be awarded.

    Are you a compassionate teen interested in developing leadership and communication skills?  Mitzvah Circle Foundation is looking for new Teen Ambassadors!

     

    Mitzvah Circle Foundation is an organization in Harleysville that provides personalized, basic necessities to people struggling with crisis, poverty, serious illness and homelessness. Hundreds of volunteers give their time each month and Teen Ambassadors are trained as volunteer leaders who help guide these new volunteers. This program offers a truly life-changing experience for teens to make a big difference in their communities. Find us on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram for a look at our volunteers and Teen Ambassadors in action!

    Starting in late June Teen Ambassadors participate in 10 hours of training, learning the detailing of volunteer roles. 

     

    Teens participate in 10 hours of training during designated training sessions (if the full 10 hours isn't of training isn't possible during these sessions, teens can schedule to train during any of our regular daily hours).

     

    Summer 2019 Teen Ambassador Training Dates

     

     Monday, June 17th 12:30-3:00

    Tuesday, June 18th 9:30-12

    Monday, July 8th 12:30-3

    The program's commitment is to volunteer at least once a month for a year. Of course, we love to see our Teen Ambassadors even more! Teens typically choose to volunteer during our twice-monthly Sunday dates of service, on Teen Nights (when teens from the community volunteer), other evenings when groups volunteer and/or days off from school. Many of our Teen Ambassadors continue participation throughout their high school years.

     

     

    Interested teens, or those seeking more info, should email Senior Program Manager, Rachel Hurley, at rachel@mitzvahcircle.org by May 24th.
