NEXT MEETING: TBA
WHO ARE WE?
Project Help is the student-led service group at Central High that began 20+ years ago. Students learn to give their time in service while also developing valuable leadership skills. Our mission is: "to support humanitarian causes through volunteer service. We strive to provide support and outreach to the disadvantaged and needy in the local, national, and international communities" (revised Dec 2010).
WHERE DO WE MEET?
Project Help meets in room 504 (near the math hallway bathrooms). Service projects vary each week, but may include: writing cards to veterans, making blankets for the elderly and hospice patients, cleaning up the courtyard, painting banners for upcoming events, sorting donated items, preparing for school ribbon drives, and much more!
HOW DO I BECOME A MEMBER?
Just attend our meetings and/or events! No matter what your GPA, grade level, or other clubs, we always welcome members to join us for service events when they can. Simply sign up for some of our service events or attend a Wednesday afternoon service session. Those wanting to run join the executive board, must have logged at least 10 hours at Project Help sponsored events.
