Senior Service Recognition
A Community Service Graduation Honor For Seniors

In its work to create both lifelong learners and lifelong citizens, Stevenson High School has created an honor for those students dedicated to serving their community. Students who show a sustained commitment to community service over the course of their high school career will be recognized during the commencement ceremony. 

Seniors only may apply for this honor if they have completed 4-10 significant, long-term community service experiences during their four years in high school. These experiences may be completed anywhere.

“significant, long-term” experience is defined as:

  • Multiple days in duration (not just a one-time event)

  • Equal to or greater than a full work week total over the course of an entire high school career (40 hours minimum)

  • Related to a personal goal of the student and tied to at least one United Nations global goal (discussed in a student reflection when submitting the application)

Recognized seniors will receive a special tassel to be worn at their graduation ceremony.

Service Experience Qualifying Criteria
In order for service experiences to be verified in the application process, they must meet the following criteria and be approved by a non-family member adult:

    *  Service activities are done on behalf of others (not including immediate family members).

    *  The primary intent of the activity is to aid and assist others for the good of the community.

    *  No compensation (grade, class credit, monetary or other) has been given.

    *  Service activities must be done outside the school day or during unscheduled time.

    *  The acts of service must promote the values incorporated in the Stevenson High School Vision and Values Statement.

How to Maintain a Service Portfolio
Stevenson High School uses an online community service registration and verification program called InnerView (my.innerview.org). Every student in the school receives a login and password through his or her Stevenson email account. (If you did not receive this email or forgot your password, please go to my.innerview.org, go to login and click on "forgot password.” Type in your Stevenson email address and InnerView will email you the password.)

InnerView allows students to record their own community service experiences, documenting them with written reflections and photos. InnerView also allows students to sign up for some community service experiences directly through the platform. While maintaining a portfolio on InnerView, it is critical to document the work and record adult sponsor information (emails and phone numbers). Students will also want to have conversations with these adult sponsors to inform them that they will be using them as contacts for later service verification, so that the adults will be prepared.

Students will use information compiled in their InnerView accounts to complete applications for NHS, Senior Service Recognition, Inspiring Service Awards, and many other opportunities.

Application Process
Online applications are due for seniors on Friday, March 15, 2019Visit this link for the online application.

The application process will require:

  • Service and adult contact information that has been collected from InnerView and other sources.  

  • A 30-second video explaining why community service is personally important to the student.

  • Written reflections in response to prompts.

A committee of teachers and school officials will call or email all adult contacts to verify service work.
