FTHS Community Service
Philosophy regarding Community Service
We strongly believe in Community Service at Foothill Technology High School. Giving back to and improving the community which provides us the opportunity for excellence in education is the cornerstone of our Community Service program. Students are encouraged to complete and submit hours for Community Service, as they 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 students 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 at which to volunteer.
We recommend a minimum of three different community service activities over the four years of high school.
