High School Community Service

As of June 6, 2013 the High School Community Service Program will be managed by the Sarasota County School District; Volunteer Community Connections is no longer managing the program.
NOTICE: Students at specific schools must register on this website for pre-approval of non-profit site at which they want to provide community service. The activities the student will be doing must also be listed. Hours completed before application and written/electronic approval will not be accepted.

We are pleased to announce that pre-approval of high school community service became an electronic process on August 19, 2013. From that time forward, all high school community service applications will be processed through the website to be posted on this page. Paper applications will not be accepted by the high school program manager after August 19, 2013, for the schools listed below.

Please click on the button below to register for pre-approval.
This electronic approval is available to students attending: Booker High School, Island Village Montessori-Venice, Sarasota High School, Riverview High School, Sarasota Virtual School, Suncoast Polytechnical High School, Venice High School, Imagine at North Port and North Port High School.

Log Sheets:
Once approval is confirmed through an email to the parent, the student can log into their account and print a log sheet to take to the community service site for signatures.  Each day and time should be logged and a signature from the adult at the site is required.

Students attending the following schools may not use this system. Please see your Community Service Contacts:

  • Pine View – Ms. Lynn Halcomb, School Counselor
  • Sarasota Military Academy- Mrs. Linda Daysh, Registrar
  • Juniors and seniors in the Riverview High School IB Diploma Program need to see Ms. Linda Cleary for their CAS hours.
