Need advice about community service.

Recommended Posts

I don't think that it would count as community service. Still, when including a description of the mission trip on a college application/essay, I wouldn't fail to mention that she worked to pay for it herself. That's impressive and counts for something!

Your child cannot count raising her own money as service because she is the beneficiary. Service means others are the beneficiary. Also, if she is receiving academic credit or she is paid, she cannot clalim service hours from a fundraiser.




My son is starting college this year and this was basically the explaination for how to count community service hours on his application.
