Bridging education opportunities through public private partnerships

Volunteerism Component

The Foundation requires that a family fulfill community service for the school year. A family that receives a K-12 scholarship must complete 40 hours, and a family that receives a PREK scholarship must complete 10 hours. Please keep in mind that this requirement is for the entire family. Each family should complete the Bridge Volunteerism Form found below. A family has one year from the time that the scholarship award was deposited into their school's tuition account to complete the entire requirement. Each family should return the form directly to the school upon completion of the hours. We ask that the school collect all of the forms and mail them to the Foundation in one complete package.

If a parent already volunteers at the school, i.e. in the library, cafeteria, etc. they may use those hours toward the requirement. We do ask that the children perform some of the volunteer hours. Please note that their service hours can range from coloring a picture for the elderly at a nursing home, writing a letter to troops overseas, to picking up garbage on the playground. Volunteer hours that a family performs in their community or church parish may also be used to fulfill this requirement.
