*first, check the by-laws on the home tab. It's a good place to start! What counts for volunteering hours? Your volunteer hours must be submitted for time during which you participated in service to the community which was uncompensated. What counts for Community Events? These are specific events which the NHS officer council has identified to encourage the NHS membership to participate in, in a group capacity. They will be communicated to you and posted on the NHS website.
I did something really cool. Can that be counted for a C.E.? No. They must be approved and made available to all NHS members by the NHS Officers. If you have an idea for a Community Event, send it to them for approval. What counts for tutoring? You must tutor a student at Pioneer, under the observation of a Pioneer staff member. The student must be a Pioneer student, and not in the NHS.
What's the deal with these forms? To get credit for volunteering, AND for Community Events, AND for tutoring, you must turn in an NHS volunteer form, correctly filled out to Mr. Brennan within 2 weeks of the activity. Forms may be turned in in the main office, far to the right of the desk, or into Mr. Brennan at C-223. What if it's an ongoing activity? If you're doing the same thing on a weekly basis or such, turn in your form within two weeks of the last date of the activity. As soon as you have 8-10 hours, please turn in the forms. Mr. Brennan doesn't want tons of forms at the end of the semester.
