EXTENDED DEADLINE Grades 6-11: May 1, 2021

Crosby Scholars are required to complete two hours of community service. Scholars must submit a form documenting their hours that includes a signature of the person in charge of the service activity by the deadline noted above. The form can be submitted in various ways:

  1. Turn it into your school counseling office
  2. Drop it off at the Crosby Scholars office
  3. Upload the form to the student portal
  4. Take a picture of the form and email it to
  5. Fax it to (704) 762-3513
  6. Mail it to us via US mail

Scholars who completed the Crosby Scholars Program during the previous school year may count hours volunteered after the previous year's deadline, including summer volunteer hours, toward the following school year's requirement.

Community service must be performed with a non-profit agency or be an activity that benefits a non-profit agency. The volunteer commitment can be fulfilled through scouts, school clubs, civic organizations, and/or certain church activities. While membership in a club or organization does not count as service, volunteering in the community in a club-sponsored activity does. For example, being a member of a youth choir doesn't count, but singing at a nursing home with the choir qualifies as service hours. If you have questions about whether your community service idea meets the requirement for the Program, please contact Crosby Scholars at (704) 762-3512. Crosby Scholars Program staff reserves the right to determine if a community service activity fulfills our requirement.
