Community service must be volunteer type work for a reputable non‐profit organization (NOT a business or individual) and beneficial to the community. It can be done in one day, or spread through many. Select an activity that you are interested in and get involved. If you are not sure if a certain activity counts for community service, or you are having difficulty finding something, let your PE teacher know early!
