Service hours are time spent researching, planning, implementing, reflecting, and celebrating service. Clubs are responsible of recording the service hours of each member, getting them verified by their sponsors, and turning them in to the Executive Service Council at the end of each semester. At SAS, service hours are recorded to gather service participation data. In the case where a student moves to another school, the Executive Service Council will send his or her service hours to the student’s new counselor on request. It is also a way to recognize the hard work dedicated club members have put in over the course of the year. However, service hours are by no means of paramount importance. Students must not only engage in service for the service hours - this completely contradicts the true purpose of sustained, authentic service.
Below is the service hours template that all service clubs and service-oriented clubs at SAS use.
