All students are required to complete nine hours of service learning for each year of enrollment at Menasha High School. Service learning refers to service that a student performs for the benefit of his or her local community and improves the quality of life for community residents. Menasha High School uses the GETNvolved website, www.GetnVolved.org, to provide opportunities and track student progress toward the service learning requirement. Here students can find a list of volunteer opportunities and can also record their own volunteer hours as they are completed.

 

Examples of Service Learning opportunities include (but are not limited to):

-collecting much needed items including clothing, shoes, food, blankets, etc.
-getting involved with Habitat for Humanity
-volunteering with a local non-profit agency
-reading to the elderly in nursing homes
-helping out at a local library
-tutoring developmentally disabled children for free
-youth service learning project: connection between classroom learning and learning in communities
 

Service Learning hours that are required for membership of an organization or community service hours that are required for the justice system may not be used toward the graduation requirement. Babysitting needs pre-approval to be used for graduation requirement.


In addition to the required nine hours per year, students may earn the following:

-72 hours, students will receive one-half credit towards graduation
- 100 hours, students will receive a youth service honor cord at graduation
- 250 hours, students will receive a youth service high honor cord at graduation
