Students, please make sure you have taken the time to read the eligibility rules for approved community service prior to doing the service hours.  We, as a counseling department, want to reiterate that paid hours, lawn care or house work for a neighbor, babysitting for a daycare and service hours supervised by a family member are not eligible hours.  We have a 6 page pre-made list for you to select a non-profit option.  You can access that list on the Ralston webpage or from your counselor.
