Volunteering

If you are a middle or high school student who is interested in volunteering for the IT Club, please fill out this application form! We are looking for students who have experience in STEM and want to give back to their community.


How to Apply For Volunteer Hours


You may report volunteer hours and request a volunteer certificate from IT club by submitting this google form. In the google form, we ask you to attach a document showing your self-tracked volunteer hours indicating service date, activity and hours (see volunteer hour tracking template).

!! The old spreadsheet for recording volunteer hour is not going to be used anymore, and will be deleted soon.


President’s Volunteer Service Award

The President’s Volunteer Service Award is a program which gives citizens the opportunity to receive recognition for the community service they do. The IT Club's PVSA season begins on Sept 1st and ends Aug 31st the following year.

In order to apply for the PVSA from IT club, you need to request the volunteer certificates from the non-profit organizations (eg. IT club) from which you earned volunteer hours, and then submit the PVSA application form. In the google form, the volunteer certificates are required to be uploaded.

Please note that the IT club accepts up to 40% of total verified volunteer hours from other non-profit organizations for those who are registered as IT club members. The rest must be volunteer hours obtained from IT Club activities. We do not accept volunteer hours from other organizations unless we obtain verified proof, which includes official volunteer certificate with the header of the external organization and signatures from the organization's representative(s).
