Community Service

In order for students to satisfy the community service requirement for Bright Futures eligibility, they must:

  • Develop a written community service plan which addresses a social problem or concern and his or her personal involvement in addressing the issue. 
  • Submit community service documentation to a school counselor upon completion of the approved activity, which includes an essay or other presentation in which the student evaluates and reflects upon his or her experience. 

 Community service projects will not be accepted if they were completed: 

  • For a family member 
  • Prior to the summer before entering Grade 9 

Beginning with the 2017-2018 school-year, all high schools will use the Community Service Form and Community Service Log & Reflection to document community service for OCPS students.

School counselors must:

  • Approve student plans prior to implementation.
  • Review documentation upon completion. 
  • Check for signatures from the student, parent/guardian, and a representative of the organization for which the student performed the volunteer service work.
