To qualify for Bright Futures Scholarships students in Florida must complete 75-100 hours of community service. Most other grants and scholarships require some sort of community service activity for consideration. But where can you complete this service? There are so many agencies needing help. Some don’t want unchaperoned students, or even accept students as volunteers. It can be a complicated challenge.
Most students want to volunteer (whether they receive “credit” for it or not) but just don’t know how to go about doing it. Or haven’t been asked! That’s where GET REAL Involved! comes in!
With GET REAL Involved! you can earn service hours, make a difference in the community, and hang out with friends…all at the same time!
GET REAL Involved! engages youth in service in the Tampa Bay area. Each month, GET REAL Involved! will coordinate a project at Hillsborough County approved sites to help you fulfill your service hours requirements. We get you there and back — all you have to do is fill out a few forms (click here) show up, have fun and make a difference!
