Varsity Letter In Volunteerism

With a partnership of our local Youth United and United Way of Skagit County, Burlington-Edison High School will now recognize and reward students for their volunteer efforts in the community. Students who volunteer 100 hours or more of service in a year can earn a school varsity letter, the same as those earned by athletes and musicians. Applicants must meet all requirements and guidelines. The program will be a work in progress for the first year.

Students meeting the requirements and earning a letter will be recognized at the end of the school year during the athletics/activities assembly on campus during the school day.

WHAT IS VOLUNTEERISM? "The policy or practice of volunteering one's time or talents for charitable, educational, or other worthwhile activities, especially in one's community". This sheet gives you the benefits of volunteering, asking the right questions, and finding out what is the right volunteer opportunity for you. Please review this Be a good volunteer powerpoint and then, answer the following questions at this link for the "How to be a good volunteer training?"
