Family Service Hours

ONE ACCOUNT PER FAMILY

MULTIPLE FAMILY MEMBERS CAN USE THE SAME ACCOUNT

Damien High School uses Track it Forward to view, sign up and register for Family Service Hours. Normally, each family is required to complete 20 hours of service per year at Damien events. Due to the COVID-19 Social Restrictions, we have lowered the Parent Service hours to 15 for the 2020-2021 school year. It is anticipated that the family service commitment will return to 20 hours in future academic years. Service hours need to be completed between April 1, 2020 and March 31, 2021. The majority of our volunteer opportunities will be posted online for easier visibility and sign up.  We hope that you will take the time to get involved and contribute to the Damien community.  In order to begin volunteering and accruing Family Service Hours, please follow the steps below.  

Set up a Track it forward account by logging into www.trackitforward.com and create a username and password.  You will sign in and register under Damien High School.

Once you have created an account you will be able to do the following:

  • View & register for volunteer opportunities 

  • Log in your hours or donation once completed (must be logged in within 2 weeks of completing or donating)

  • Track your hours completed

  • One account per student/family

Some events may require donations of items rather than work completed.  Only donations requested in Track it Forward will be accepted.  These donations must be logged and a receipt submitted to the event coordinator within 2 weeks of donating (No Exceptions). Donations can fulfill up to 10 HOURS or $200.00 of the family service requirement. 


IMPORTANT INFORMATION

  1. Families are required to do 15 hours per family, not per student.

  2. Service hours cannot carry over to next year, or be transferred to another family. 

  3. Meetings do not qualify for hours (clubs, athletic boosters, St. Monica Guild monthly meeting, general information meeting, athletic teams, Regiment, etc.)

  4. Shopping for a particular group, club or athletic team does not qualify for hours.

  5. It is advisable to fulfill your hours early in the school year.  There is no guarantee that there will be available activities near the end of the year.

  6. You must log in hours yourself within 2 weeks of completion.
