ADVOCACY AND COMMUNITY SERVICE
Community service is an important program at Cosumnes Oaks High School although participation is strictly voluntary. It is coordinated through the students’ Advocacy teacher. Students not only gain the benefits of helping in their community, gaining job skills and experience, but they are able to add this to their college applications, scholarship requests and employment applications. They also earn the following benefits while here at Cosumnes Oaks:
For all the Classes - 2015, 2016, 2017, 2018
For Level One:
Students must complete 20 hours in 9th and 10th grade and 30 hours in 11th and 12th grade for a total of 100 hours.
For Level Two:
Students must complete 40 hours as 9th and 10th graders and 60 hours as 11th and 12th graders for a total of 200 hours.
- Community service hours must be performed for and documented by a non-profit organization.
- Documentation must be given by the student to their Advocacy teacher on or before the last scheduled day of Advocacy/Wolfpack Hour of the school year.
- Students are encouraged to keep copies of all documentation. Senior year, students must have all documentation for all hours turned in by the end of term 3.
