Qualified Community Service Hours
Youth Earn Service Hours Participating in the Green Crew
We know that youth do not engage with the Green Crew in order to fulfill community service requirements, but it is a nice little extra benefit for those that do.
Most of the Green Crew adventures are or include, a significant number of service hours to the community. This service time is not only in the execution of the ecological project but also in planning, design, and development. For an active Green Crew member, this could total over 100 hours per year.
Each Green Crew activity participant will receive a certificate of completion, which includes the total time of their contribution. This certificate will be signed by the Youth Leader of the project, the Youth Leader of the Crew, and the adult Associate Advisor of Programming.
These certificates can be used by youth to meet qualifications for community service requirements. These could be requirements from a school or another Scout unit or organization.
We know that youth do not engage with the Green Crew to fulfill community service requirements, but it is a nice little extra benefit for those who are committed to improving the environment.
We are happy to work with you to ensure that your school has a good understanding of the Green Crew program to make an informed decision on the eligibility of the hours you spend doing adventures with the Green Crew.
We believe that both the planning and execution time are part of the service time. Therefore, we are happy to record both the time spent planning an adventure and doing the adventure. Please confirm with your School or Orgnaization what time qualified for your particular requirement. We will complete your Certificate accordingly.
Hello! I am a youth leader for Boy Scouts – Troop 68- Edina. Our boys are looking for a few community service opportunities this summer for a few evenings. I was wondering if you could tell me more information about any opportunities that would be appropriate for 5th, 6th, and 7th grade boys? Thank you!
