CCS Live United Volunteer Program

Student VolunteersThe Cumberland County Schools has partnered with the United Way of Cumberland County to create a countywide volunteer program that will enable all students to serve their community and give them exposure to community programs and resources.  The CCS Live United Volunteer Program will help students gain professional experience, encourage civic responsibility, promote healthy self-esteem, and enable students to give back to their community. The goal of this project is to increase student opportunities for community service in order to provide invaluable experience and meet college application requirements. Students earning a specific number of hours will earn a service cord at graduation. At the conclusion of the 2014-2015 school year, 0ver 500 seniors completed enough volunteer hours to earn a service cord.

Program Definition

Community Service or Volunteering will be defined as any unpaid work that a student does for an organization. The hours must be documented by a paid employee of the organization. Many schools have approved lists of organizations that their students may volunteer with. Please check with the advisor at your school if you have any questions.

The program will be monitored through the advisor at each individual high school. Please ask in the Guidance Office as to who is the advisor at your high school.  They can also use this Verification Form to submit the hours to the designated advisor. Organizations that are not on the list may also be used with the exception of political organizations.  If you volunteer at an organization that is not listed, you will need to get approval from your advisor.

Volunteer hours that will be considered for a service cord must have taken place no earlier than May 1 for the next school year. The hours must be recorded and verified by the advisor at your high school no later than May 1 of the student’s senior year.
Service cord requirements:

  • Class of 2016 and beyond – 50 hours earned between  May  1 of their junior year through  May 1 of their senior year.
  • Any hours earned during summer volunteer work can be applied toward the requirement.

If you have any questions, please contact your school’s Live United Volunteer Advisor.
