Service Hours, 2016-2017

To be considered an active standing member, one will complete:

10 in club hours

4 outside volunteer hours

4 collection hours

4 meeting hours

TOTAL: 22 hours


*Active in-Club Volunteer Hours

Active volunteer hours are those served during events organized by the Cumberland Valley Key Club. If you know of an event that needs volunteers, please contact Ms. Ferree and ask if it can be included in the club’s events!

*Collections Hours

Throughout the school year, you may hand in the following to Mr. Fish’s room (260) for collections hours:

        1 sandwich bag (up to 3) of soda tabs for 1 hour

        15 glossy magazines (up to 45) for 1 hour


There will also be clothing, food drives, and charity collections (i.e. UNICEF, LLS, etc) at announced times that will allow you to earn collections hours.

*Meeting Hours

We ask that you try your best to make EVERY meeting throughout the year. If that is not possible, please attempt to attend at least 2-3 each semester for a total of at least 5 meetings.

- 1 hour is granted for those who attend entire meeting

- .5 hour is granted for those who attend but must leave early for another obligation (i.e. sports, appointments, etc.

- If you can not make a meeting but have a chance to “check in” between 3-3:10pm to see what information is being given, we will have you sign in and keep this for our records. No hours will be given for this check in. However, if you then regularly participate in other volunteer categories (besides meetings), we will know that you at least tried to stay in contact with the club through these “check ins” and you can remain in good standing.

*Outside Hours

As a club that seeks to serve its school and community, we hope that you are seeking to volunteer on your own. We ask that you find ways to volunteer outside of the club’s events. When you complete these hours, you may submit an individual hours form to Mr. Fish which can be found on the website (make sure to take with you when you volunteer).

AS A RULE OF THUMB- If you are volunteering for something that you would list on an activities resume on its own (i.e. volunteer camp counselor, internship at a hospital, etc), these hours should NOT be submitted toward your outside hours.

*SENIORS must have all hours completed by April 27, 2016 to earn graduation stole

SIGNING UP FOR EVENTS

*If you would like to sign up to volunteer, visit the Key Club website and click on the “Events” page. Here, you can enter your information (name, grade, e-mail, phone) and sign up for an event shift.

*If you can not attend an event because of an EMERGENCY, please contact us ASAP.

IF YOU SIGN UP FOR A SHIFT, MAKE SURE TO MARK YOUR CALENDAR AND ARRIVE ON THE DESIGNATED DATE/TIME.

ATTENDANCE POLICY FOR EVENTS

If you sign up and do not show up, you are taking away that “spot” from another member who could have volunteered AND letting down the organizers of the event.

1)    If you can not attend an event because of an EMERGENCY, please remove your name from the timetosignup sheet and if possible have someone fill your spot (at least 24 hours notice)

2)    The most responsible action you can take if a non-emergency conflict comes up with your shift is to find a fellow member to cover the time slot

3)    No call no show:

-1st warning: Minus 1 hour from yearly total

-2nd warning: Minus the # of hours for which you signed up for the event
