Non-NHS Service Suggestions
What is a Non-NHS service event? While we plan and organize many events thoughout the year that get our students out serving in the community, there are many other places in our area to plug into that NHS doesn't coordinate specific events with. Maybe you volunteer at your church or with your scout troop. These are not NHS events, but they can still count for service hours! If you want to come up with your own service project apart from the ones you can sign up for through us, take a look at the ideas below.
Looking for service ideas for a non-NHS event? Download the document below to review a growing list of Humble and Houston area non-profits and organizations that need your help! Please make sure to specifically contact an organization or non-profit before you go to volunteer in order to verify a need for service and complete any volunteer application (if required). Please email the service account if the organization on the list is not taking volunteers, if the contact information is incorrect, if you are not getting a response, or if you have an organization to add to the list. We want to keep the list as accurate and up-to-date as possible! This list should help you be more proactive in seeking out non-NHS point opportunities.
Looking for some virtual ways to volunteer? Check out some ideas here! (Please note that you still need to complete a preapproval form for these service opportunities.)
*Don't forget to fill out a non-NHS preapproval form for the event before you go serve. You can download the preapproval form below. Any non-NHS events conducted without a pre-approval will not count for service hours.
Option 1: Email the completed pre-approval form to the email@example.com at least 5 days ahead of the event in order to guarantee a response. When you get a response, you need to print the approval email and attach it to your point form in order to get credit.
Option 2: If you have a last minute opportunity or are walking by Blue house, you can get a hard copy pre-approval form signed by Ms. Williams (2513) or Ms. Spence (2512). You would need to attach this signed form to your point form in order to get credit.
