Guilford County Schools (GCS) wants every student to become involved in service-learning. GCS offers either of the following recognitions to students who dedicate time within their high school career to make an impact in the community. The Service-Learning Exemplary Award is an honor a GCS high school student, who devotes a minimum of 100 hours of service-learning experience in their community over the course of their high school years, may receive upon graduation. The Service-Learning Diploma is a locally developed official recognition program designed to recognize high school students who are committed to serving their community. Students who complete 250 hours of service-learning experience over the course of their high school years will receive this certification upon graduation.
COVID-19 UPDATE: Due to Covid-19, the thresholds for earning a Service-Learning Diploma or Award have been adjusted. The new thresholds are 192 for a Diploma and 77 for the Award.
