What is required for school/community service?
Students are required to complete 10 hours of volunteer service per semester. Tutoring, coaching, volunteer work with other community groups can all be counted. Any service that is not compensated and helps others qualifies. The goal is for members to balance their high academic achievement with public or school service.

Students who qualify for 3 or more semesters will promote 'With Honors". They will receive a CJSF gold pin, a certificate with a gold seal, and they will be accepted as an Associate Member in CSF (the high school California Scholarship Federation).
