Validation of Service Hours
  for Individual Service Projects


1. Do I need to submit a group or individual form?
a. Group forms are for groups completing a service ( ex. Smith Club cleaning streets as a group)
b. Individual forms are for individuals completing a service even if he/she is part of a group

2. Do I submit one form for each project?
a. The electronic form below is to track your hours at the same service site. If you volunteered at multiple service sites/projects, please complete the electronic form for each different service site.

3. What counts as service?
a. Direct Service
b. Internships?- only if they are unpaid and with a not-for-profit or public good organization (ex. Hospital)
c. Philanthropy and Fundraising? Yes (ex. Dine out nights or Dance Marathon)
d. Awareness events? Yes (ex. Letter writing Campaign, Hunger Banquet, or Sleep out)

4. Helpful Tips:
a. Fill out the form completely!
b. Round to the nearest quarter of an hour (ex. 3.75 = 3 hr, 45 min.)
c. Use a sentence or less to explain what you did as a service under Service Activities (ex. Sorted incoming clothing). If possible, identify if the project was direct service, fundraising, or an awareness project.
d. Contact Person cannot be yourself or someone within your group. Please provide a faculty sponsor, site supervisor, or an organization leader that can verify your services.
e. You must provide a contact phone number or email for your service site supervisor.  The office of Community Outreach & Leadership will use this information to verify your service with the community partner.
