      How do I document hours?

      • Global Leadership Academy Community Service Documentation Online Form:
        • You’ll need the signature & contact information for the person who is verifying your hours. This person cannot be a member of your family/household.
        • Turn one in for each type of community service performed.
      • If you are volunteering multiple times for the same activity/location:
        • Please keep track on a log (see “Community Service Student Hours Log”)
