• Covid-19 Update

    Posted by Julie Hennis on 3/31/2020 1:30:00 PM

    Due to the current situation regarding the COVID-19 virus, the Service Learning Program was suspended on March 23, 2020.  Service hours will not be approved until school resumes and the threat of the virus is over. For seniors, the 25-hour service learning requirement to graduate has been waived.  Service hours will not impact graduation this year.

    We strongly urge you not to put yourself or others in an unsafe situation by going out into the community. Please stay home and be safe.  There will be information shared about service learning once school resumes.

    If you attended the Service Learning Expo, you must submit your hours through the agency called CHCCS Volunteer Office.  Look for the event called "CHCCS Service Learning Expo 2019-2020 (Sat. Sept. 14th 9AM-1PM)"

  • Entering Service Hours

    Posted by Julie Hennis on 9/19/2019 10:00:00 AM

    There were some questions at the Service Learning Expo about how to enter service hours into LetServe.  Here are a couple of reminders that might help if you are experiencing any difficulties:

    1) Make sure that you have the name of the agency or event added to your LetServe account.  In order to add an event, you must actually click on the plus sign before you can go in and submit hours.

    2) If you are not able to get in LetServe, it might be that you just need to reset your password.  Click on "forgot password".  A new one will be sent to you.   You will not be able to copy and paste your new password, so be sure you enter it exactly as it is written.

  • LetServe Update

    LetServe Update

    Thanks to all who attended the Service Learning Expo. The goal was to inform students about the many service opportunities within the community.

    If you have not already done so, please submit your hours through LetServe. If for some reason you are unable to enter your hours, make sure that 1) you have reset your password and 2) you have added the event to your list of events/agencies. When you want to add an agency, be sure to actually click on the "plus" prior to entering your hours. Please note: You only need to submit hours one time.

    Thank you all again for such an outstanding turn out. Look forward to a great year of service!

    LetServe Update

    With the new school year under way, this is a good time to begin thinking about your service learning plans. To get you started, please save the date for the first ever Service Learning Expo!

    Saturday, September 14, 2019
    10:00 am - 12:00 pm
    Carrboro High School

    Non-profit agencies will have tables throughout the school and will be available to speak with you regarding any questions you might have about service for their organizations. Additionally, there will be people on hand to assist you with your LetServe account.

    Because this event is for the purpose of understanding service learning in your community, each student will receive up to 2 hours for attending the event.
    Look forward to seeing you there.

What is Service Learning?

  • Service Learning is a teaching-learning method that connects meaningful community service experiences with academic learning, personal growth, and civic responsibility. Students who graduate from high school in the Chapel Hill-Carrboro City Schools District must fulfill a Service Learning requirement.

    The purpose of Service Learning is to provide students the opportunity to have a positive impact on our local community. Service Learning allows students to expand their horizons and foster meaningful relationships with others in their community.  

    CHCCS uses a service learning-management system called LetServe which allows students to log their Service Learning Hours on a computer or from a smartphone. Each student has been set up with a LetServe Account. 

    Follow these instructions to log in:
