Welcome to the HCPS Community Service page. Here you can find the guidelines for community service and the parent information letter. You can also find opportunities available to perform community service by looking at the menu bar at the top of this page. However, the form needed to log hours can only be given to students by the community service leader at each school. In order to receive this form, students need to first turn in a signed Parent Letter.
Community Service Resources
Community service guidelines for the 2021-2022 school year for both middle and high school can be found at the links below. Please remember that before logging hours you should sign and return your school’s parent letter. This form will be either digital or in hard copy form depending on your student’s school and can be received by contacting your school’s community service lead (CSL). You can find a list of individuals serving in this role by school here.

Service with refugee communities
Henrico County is home to a wide array of refugee communities, each contributing mightily to a culture that is becoming increasingly diverse and rich with opportunities to explore the world without really even leaving our neighborhoods. At the beginning of the pandemic, HCPS and the Office of Equity, Diversity, and Opportunity partnered with a myriad of organizations and individuals who serve these communities to ensure effective communication and access to resources during virtual instruction. As we have returned to face to face instruction that committee’s purpose has evolved and is now focused on serving the needs of refugee communities (including recently arrived Afghan refugees). These organizations are always in need of help and could be AMAZING partners for whole-class community service projects, club-based projects, or individual students who are inspired by your instruction and want to help make a difference.
If you or any of your students are interested please contact me or have your students contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll get started. I am SO excited about this work and want to facilitate it for anyone who feels the same!
