Your required service must be supervised Direct Service to, for, and/or alongside those who are in significant need. You must provide generous service to the less fortunate, the needy, the dependent, lonely, and the poor. This service should require the student to have direct contact with those served. Direct service requires you to engage with those in need and others who serve them. Work in soup kitchens, food pantries, and shelters, tutoring the disadvantaged, visiting and engaging nursing home patients, teaching CCD, or altar serving are good examples of what qualifies. Also, any service project organized by a student that includes multiple students and a Faculty Mentor will qualify. What does not qualify could be a selfless activity that may indeed be generous, but is not oriented towards the less fortunate, the needy, the dependent or the poor. For example filing papers at your mom’s office, household chores, coaching non disadvantaged youth, and anything you are paid for would not count for your Required Hours.
