    Service Learning Information

    Service Learning Contract
    List of Non-Profit Organizations

    60 hours of Service Learning are required for graduation from Seattle Public Schools. (15 hours per year in Seattle Public Schools = total of 60 hours for 4 years)

    Don’t wait until the last day requirements must be met to graduate to turn hours in!! Get started this summer if you don’t have hours yet, and be sure to turn in your time logs right away (so you don’t forget) when you come back to school in the fall.

    • Make sure your site is a non-profit organization (otherwise your hours cannot be counted toward graduation).
    • Check the Daily School Bulletin and the counseling pages of the Hale website for volunteer opportunities
    • Service Learning Contract/Logs are available in the Counseling Office.
    • Have your supervisor fill out and sign the Service Learning Contract.
    • Have your parent/guardian sign.
    • Keep track of your hours on the Time Log (back of your contract) and have your supervisor sign/initial next to your hours.
    • Make a copy of your Contract/Time Log for your records.
    • Turn you contract/log in to the Counseling office or into the Service Learning Box in the Main Office.

    Please note: you do not need to do all of your hours in one place or at one site. If you think you may be interested in several sites, make 3 or 4 copies of the blank contract/time log so you have extras – one per site.

    If you are not finding service learning opportunities, talk with your friends and see where they are volunteering. Talk with your family members to get ideas and contacts. See your counselor, mentorship teacher, or another Hale staff member for ideas or help.
