Our Community Service-Learning Program provides Juveniles an opportunity to repay their debts to society by completing a set number of hours assigned by the Court, School or Probation Department. This program seeks to provide juveniles, with a community service order, the resources necessary to complete their assigned hours. Our program focuses on providing community service hours through assignment and activities encompassing education, advocacy, civic engagement, and service learning.

 

Our Approach:

 

Mind

You will be given the opportunity to use your brain by completing a variety of research assignment to help you develop your awareness in the areas of the community (local, national, world), hot topic issues (example: Bullying or Global Warming) and personal development.

 

Body

You will be given the opportunity to help-out physically at a local food bank, community garden, neighborhood clean-up, local church or nonprofit organization. 

 

Spirit

 Once you have completed your assignments, you will work on putting a presentation together to report out on your community service experience. The expectable presentation includes: PowerPoint Presentation, YouTube Public Service Announcement Video, Oral Presentation or a 500-word essay

 

Directions for Mind Assignments:

  1. Email Andrew Quiñones @ aquinones.ivvrc@gmail.com to confirm your participation in the program.

  2. Once I receive your 1st email, you will be emailed back a list of research assignments to complete at your own pace. For every research assignment, you work on, you will log in your work-time on the timesheet provided by the IVVRC.

  3. Once you complete each assignment, you will email me a brief description of what you learned from your research.

 

Directions for Body Assignments:

  1. Go to our monthly calendar for community service opportunities @ www.ivvrc.com/calendar1.aspx   

  2. Text Andrew Quiñones on Monday-Fridays (2pm-6pm) @ 909-973-6713 to ask for a weekend or afterschool community service opportunities. 

  3. Visit with your local church or nonprofit organization to ask for community service opportunities. If they can use your help, have them contact me @ 909-973-6713 and I will send them over a timesheet with your name and information.
