Volunteering is Churchill High School requirement for graduation and also an excellent way to beef up resumes, college and scholarship applications. Having a substantial amount of volunteer hours in the community is a great way for you to set yourself apart from other people. It is also critical to get your volunteer hours done sooner rather than later, and avoid doing them all at the last minute, to prevent this you must get in your volunteer hours soon.
