Christian Service Announcements

IMPORTANT 

 

Dear Lancers,

 

If you have in your possession any signed/verified service hour sheet(s), you must log these on your student portal and keep the verification sheets because we will collect them once we come back.

 

Giving back to the community through Christian Service is now more important than ever. There are many ways you can serve the community that doesn’t necessarily require close physical contact so you still can help out while maintaining social distancing. Please refer to the links provided by the Archdiocese of Los Angeles.

Please remember that per Lancer Life, students are not allowed to work at for profit organizations, family companies, nor have their parents sign their service hour sheets.

 

Documentation is a very important part of your service. Therefore in lieu of getting a signature from a volunteer supervisor, I recommend that you take clear pictures of your charitable works as proof. Take note of the important data required in the Amat Service Verification sheet that you can find and download on the school website.

 

Thank you
