Current Member Information
2021-2022 NHS Service Information:
Current members of NHS are required to do 30 hours of service each year to maintain their good standing in the organization. The required hours are comprised of at least 18 hours Service of Presence (Service to people who are marginalized), and 12 hours of Service to SLUH. They must also be actively involved in at least three clubs or organizations, one of which may be a sport.
A brief description each type of service is given below along with an outline of how service hours can be properly completed. Service for Current Members is due in April 2023.
Service of Presence: Service of Presence means that the service involves directly spending time with and getting to know people who, for one reason or another, have been marginalized. Participation as a mentor with the Clavius Project will count as Service of Presence. There are many opportunities available through Campus Ministry's Voluntary Community Service Program (CSP). Other opportunities will be added to x2Vol as they become available.
Service to SLUH: This type of service recognizes that NHS members serve the SLUH community in ways that would traditionally be considered service, but do not fulfill the requirements of service of presence or service to our wider community. Each National Honor Society Member must be a tour guide for SLUH’s Open House and must volunteer at other SLUH events, such as Cashbah, SLUHtique, or the food drives.
Involvement: As good citizens, NHS members are involved in their respective communities in multiple ways, all of which are essential. Involvement can be SLUH related, but other organizations, such as Boy Scouts, or youth groups, are valid groups for this type of service. All member are expected to be actively involved in three clubs or organizations, only one of these may be a sport. Students will be asked to complete a form with club moderator / coach signatures and submit it with proof of their service hours by April 27, 2023.
Recording Hours: All service hours must be recorded in x2Vol within one week of completing the service. This is out of consideration to the people verifying and approving your hours.
*Senior members are required to complete a minimum of 9 hours of either Service of Presence of Service to SLUH before the end of first semester in order to fulfill their requirement. Their Senior Service Project will fulfill the rest of their hours.
