We gave volunteer hours certificates to the Potomac High School Key club and MSC members. Key club is a leadership group and fosters community service. We honored this club with FLL volunteer award. We invited them to help every year and they are considering. :-).


Another example,  Chantilly High School FIRST team 612 hosted its 2nd NOVA regionals and it was a blast. Every year I witness their creativity and leaderhip and get amazed how they make regionals memorable. For more info visit www.chantillyrobotics.com

Eric, Chesterfield County high schools used the FLL event at Midlothian H.S.
as an outlet for some of their baccalaureate and honors students needing
community service hours.  I would contact one of the counselors at
Midlothian or James River H.S. since their students assisted us during the
tournament and received community service hours.  Sounds like a lack of
information on the part of Deep Run, Carolyn (Davis Dragons #119)

Subject: [VADCFLL-L] FLL and Henrico County Schools Community Service - need
help.

My daughter's High School has denied approval for her community service work
at the FLL Maggie Walker tournament for what seems like dubious reasons.
(Deep Run High School).

For example: 

What exactly was the charity work she did?  Well she did work for a
501(c)(3) which is a charity so by definition the work is charity

The Event wasn't specifically designated for minority or underserved
children was it? As they acknowledge that FLL benefits those specific types
of children.  

I have appealed to the county and the county is defending the actions of the
HS.  I am aware of other HS young adults getting approval at Maggie Walker
for Henrico Community Service Hours. 

Frankly I'm a bit shocked by the whole thing. So are FLL staff that I have
communicated with.

I have reviewed the written rules and FLL qualified on all counts - see
http://www.henrico.k12.va.us/students/volunteer.html

I'd like to hear if other young adults have been approved for FLL, FTC or
FRC volunteer hours (my daughter volunteers at all 3) or if you are aware of
denials as well.  I'm trying to build a case on consistency and fairness.
They have rules, don't go beyond the rules. I don't need the names of the
people just the high school involved and the action that the school took.

Advice and information about other Young Adult volunteer hours is welcome.

Thanks
