Community Service FAQS


Why is community service important for me?


Taking the time to volunteer in helping others is important and essential in building character and compassion.  Equally important, it allows for one to give back to his or her community.  Here at North Haven High School, students must meet minimum community service hour requirements in order to graduate. Currently the requirements vary by grade due to the challenges faces these last few years. Here are those requirements by graduating class:

  • 25 hours for the Class of 2023,
  • 30 hours for the Class of 2024, and
  • 40 hours for the Class of 2025 and beyond.
By participating in this process, students have the tremendous opportunity to help a specific cause, organization, or belief that aims in bettering the world and society.


Where are some places that I can volunteer at if I don't know where to start?
