Volunteering one's time for a good cause can bring many personal benefits, as well as scholarship opportunities. Many students want to volunteer but are not sure how to go about doing so. If you are volunteering for the sole reason of getting yourself into college, that is probably not the best reason. If you are doing this because you believe in the organization's cause and you want to expand your own life experience, then it is a good idea to participate. Colleges like to see prospective students who have participated in community service, but they also want to see how it has affected them personally. In other words, how has this experience changed your life and has it made you a better person?
If that is something you would like to pursue, (without jeopardizing your academics), click on the link for "Volunteer List" on the right-hand side of this page. Clovis East High School does not require community service as a graduation requirement. This is something you are choosing to do for yourself.
