We strongly believe in Community Service at Foothill Technology High School. Giving back to and improving the community which provided us the opportunity for excellence in education is the cornerstone of our Community Service program. Students are encouraged to surpass the minimum hours required for Community Service, as the student may qualify for scholarship opportunities and/or use their Community Service experiences on college admission applications. Students are responsible for securing a Community Service placement. This experience is similar to that of finding a job, a situation the student will face throughout life. An approved list of organizations is posted in the Student Services Building. Students may also ask friends and relatives about community service opportunities and search the Internet to find a suitable, local, non-profit organizations for which to volunteer.
We recommend a minimum of three different community service activities over the four years of high school, but two different organizations are required.
