Community Service FAQS

Why is community service important for me?

 Taking the time to volunteer in helping others is important and essential in building character and compassion.  More importantly, it allows for one to give back to his or her community.  Here at North Haven High School, students must complete at least 40 hours of community service before graduation.  By being a part of this process, students have the tremendous opportunity to help a specific cause, organization, or belief that aims in bettering the world and society.

 Where are some places that I can volunteer at if I don't know where to start?

If you do not have a particular community service-based site or organization to begin service, please look at the recommended sites that are listed below.  These sites are located within the North Haven area and offer a variety of community service interests that may serve as a great "starting off point" in beginning your volunteerism journey.
