Volunteer Hour Reporting

Members are required to keep track of their service in the following three (3) volunteer-hour categories.  Recording hours regularly will allow you to detail the specific project in which the hours were performed (i.e. Ability House = 2 hours, Seniors = 2 hours, Community Outreach = 1 hour, Membership Recruitment = 2 hours, Leadership Development = 1 hour, etc.)

Volunteer Hrs - What Counts? 

Membership Requirement: Report a minimum of 5 hours per club year
