Northern Highlands Regional High School
Career & Academic Pathways: Community Service and Volunteering
Congratulations on your decision to volunteer and join the nearly 1.5 million volunteers currently helping to make the Garden State a great place to live and work. New Jersey’s volunteers fulfill unique and important roles in their service throughout the state. They take the initiative to respond in crisis situations, mentor and tutor children with educational needs, and are an essential part of the quality of care in the health field. Whether working as individuals or in teams, volunteers demonstrate compassion in action and truly make a difference.
Students must complete 28 hours in order to earn 1.25 credits each academic year. Students may earn a maximum of 5 credits over 4 years, and these may be used as elective credits. Service must be completed between 7/1 and 6/15 of a given school year for credit.
**Please note that any applications submitted after 6/15 will not be accepted.
**As students receive a grade and academic credit for community service, students need to drive the process. Applications submitted by parents/guardians will not be accepted per our Academic Integrity guidelines.
Northern Highlands is using a new volunteering app called VOMO. Please see Mrs. Weiss for further information on how you can receive credit for your hours of service and read the attached document. Please follow each step regarding submission for credit.
**All hours MUST be logged into VOMO in order for us to enter your grade on your transcript.
