"Through community volunteerism, young people can gain experiences that build leadership skills-- the ability to realize a vision, engage and develop others, and make things happen."

Thomas A. Page


Completion of community service is encouraged of all Mt. Lebanon High School students. Participating in the works of our school and greater community fosters values and citizenship, and provides our students with meaningful work, greater responsibility, and an enhanced sense of self. To serve one’s school and greater community is a privilege that should be approached with seriousness of purpose, good intentions, and gratitude.


Although community service is not a requirement for graduation, demonstration of commitment and investment in one’s community is highly valued by colleges and universities. It is also required for students interested in applying to the Mt. Lebanon High School chapter of National Honor Society during their junior or senior year.


Changes to Community Service for 2022-2023

No more in-school/out-of-school requirements.

By eliminating this past requirement, we hope students will engage in whatever service is most fulfilling to them and is in most need of their talents, gifts, and interests. We also hope this opens up opportunities for students to invest their time with specific projects, opportunities, and organizations that they want to serve.


As in the past, the A.O. will continue to post service opportunities from both MTLSD and the greater community as they are available. If you’re not sure what kind of service you might be interested in pursuing, stop by the A.O. and we will be happy to help you find a good fit!


Community service hours will be submitted online only.

Paper forms will no longer be used or accepted for submitting service hours. Please see details below on how to submit and track your hours. As always, contact the A.O. staff if you have any issues with the form or questions about submitting hours.


There is also a Schoology group for community service alerts.

We will post alerts in Schoology as reminders only which will always link back to this page.
