Community Service Requirements:
The Birmingham Public Schools has not imposed a community service requirement for Seaholm graduation. Community Service is instead an expected and integral part of the high school experience. Service learning is embedded into classroom curriculum and in our extracurricular programs. Whether a student is engaged in service learning through a class, club, sports team or on their own, it will be important for them to be able to document their community service hours for college applications, scholarships, awards or National Honor Society. Students should keep a file with information on service projects they have participated in with dates, hours, and contact information beginning the summer of their freshman year.
COMMUNITY SERVICE SCHOLARSHIPS AND AWARDS
If a student has been involved in a significant community service project or activity they should provide that information to Mrs. Davis in the Community Service Office and to their counselor. There are several opportunities to nominate students for community service awards throughout the year and we are not always aware of some of the special service work students have done unless they or their parents inform us. There are also many colleges and organizations that offer community service scholarships for students. The Seaholm College and Career Center has information on these scholarship programs.
SEAHOLM COMMUNITY SERVICE SCHOLARSHIP
Seaholm is pleased to be able to award an annual Seaholm Community Service Scholarship to two seniors who have demonstrated outstanding volunteer service and leadership during their four years of high school. Funds for this scholarship are generously provided by the Birmingham Rotary, Seaholm PTA and Birmingham Community Education. Two one-time scholarship awards of $500 will be awarded to two students selected by the Community Service Scholarhsip Committee. The award will be used by selected recipients to cover fees associated with post-secondary education. Eligible students must complete an application, write an essay reflecting on their service experience, submit a letter of recommendation and document their service hours during high school. Application materials will be available in the Community Service Office beginning in January each year and can be downloaded here when available. Applications are due Monday, April 9, 2018.
