Calabasas High School

Service Learning

Service learning is the new age version of community service. Each student is required to do a minimum of 15 hours per year. If a student does 50-100 hours or more each year they are eligible for a few different awards (see the awards tab to learn more) however, the additional hours will not be counted in Aeries.

Hours can be turned in at any time, but there are due dates that need to be adhered to strictly.

All hours for the year are due by May 12th- See the "deadlines" tab for more details.

Where do you submit your completed log and reflection? EASY!

For AHS go to room C-1 and hand it into Shelly Diament or Natasha Capretta

For CHS go to the counseling office and hand it in to Rachel Kay OR drop it off in the grade-appropriate box mounted on the front of her desk.

Please note: You must have a completed iServe Log OR typed letter from the organization on letter head and signed. You also MUST have completed a 150 word reflection. EVERYTHING NEEDS TO BE LEGIBLE OR IT WILL NOT BE COUNTED. See the below link for the log document


What counts as service learning?

  • Must be a non-profit organization.
  • You should do the learning for organizations that have already been approved- see below

How do you know which organizations have been approved? Click on the "Pre- Approved Organizations" here or in the menu for a list of all of the pre-approved organizations as of August 2016. This list was downloaded from Aeries.

You can also click on link at the top of this page for Volunteer Opportunities; this is updated as new opportunities are provided.

What if I want to work for an organization that hasn't been pre-approved? You will need to get the organization approved by filling out an organization approval form. See link below.


Things you can NOT do:

  • Work for a company as an intern.
  • Work for a family member as an intern
  • The organization MUST be a NON-PROFIT!

You will not receive hours for BAKING cookies or other baked goods beginning for the school year 17-18.
