All Valley Oaks students are required to complete 5 hours of community service each semester. We believe in the substantial research showing that students can greatly benefit from doing meaningful service work. These benefits include the development of emotional intelligence, happiness and mental health, relationship building, self-confidence, civic understanding, and self-identity.
We also offer an elective course for students who want to do many more than 5 hours each semester. Students may earn up to 10 elective credits every semester (150hrs) in The Community Service Course.
