Community service is an essential component of City University Schools, as all scholars are expected to make a creative and positive difference in a variety of communities in need.
Scholars of City University School of Liberal Arts and City University School of Independence must earn a total of 120 community service hours from non-profit organizations, as it serves as a graduation requirement. Only 60 of the 120 community service hours may be earned within the school (volunteering for school programs, athletic events, etc.).
Although City University Schools may present unique community service opportunities throughout the school year, scholars can find many out-of-school opportunities at Volunteer Memphis. All high school scholars must obtain a volunteer hours acknowledgment letter (on official letterhead) from each non-profit organization they earned hours from.
