 ANNOUNCEMENTS

 SENIORS:
    - In order to earn the Y.E.S. designation and your graduation medal, all 100 qualifying hours must be SUBMITTED  by Tuesday, March 31, 2015.  This is a hard deadline; paperwork submitted Wednesday, April 1 or later will NOT be  accepted.

  One of the distinctive characteristics of the United States is our conviction that each individual  can makes a difference through volunteer service.  This is reflected in the recent trend of colleges asking for community service involvement as one of their criteria for acceptance.

The Y.E.S. program provides students with the opportunity to get involved through voluntary service at the local level and to make a difference in their own neighborhoods and communities.

Y.E.S.  recognizes students who have contributed time during their high school career to their community in terms of volunteer service hours. Participation is voluntary.
Ridge Point has developed this website to access all necessary forms and information. Students will have the ability to check their total hours on the site utilizing their school ID number.


Students will need to perform 100 hours of service prior to March 31st of their senior year in order to receive a Y.E.S. medal at graduation. No more than 25 total summer hours can be credited to the required 100 hours. In other words, 75 of the hours must be earned during the school year.

 

The Y.E.S. Program is YOUR responsibility
 

Self-motivation and self-reliance are two important parts of the Y.E.S program.  It is up to you to find volunteer opportunities
that meet the program criteria and to make your own arrangements to work for the organization.  We
do not schedule you,
nor communicate
with the agency on your behalf.  It is up to you to turn in the forms, make copies, and track your hours.

 

Please review the Y.E.S. Guidelines for all rules concerning what is and is not acceptable prior to submitting hours for consideration.

You MUST have a signed contract turned in with your first service form in order to join the Y.E.S. program.

Y.E.S. table will be open Wednesday during lunch

SUMMER ANNOUNCEMENTS - 2014

SUMMER HOURS:
    - As a reminder, only 25 of the required 100 hours may be earned during summer.  That is ALL summers combined, not  25 per summer.  In other words, 75 of the required hours must be earned during the school year. 
    - "Summer" starts June 7, 2014 and ends August 24, 2014.


INCOMING FRESHMAN:
    - You may begin counting hours the first day of summer following completion of 8th grade.  However, in order for those hours to count, your signed contract must be turned in during the first 9 weeks of your freshman fall semester.
