Clubs with Service Focus

These experiences provide opportunities for service to our school and town communities. Either individually or as part of a group, you will be giving to others as you volunteer your time and effort.

COMMUNITY SERVICE

This is a voluntary initiative whereby students give of themselves to their community in community service organized activities. They fill out verification forms for these activities called purple forms (located in the Student Activities office).

All community service hours must be verified and returned to the Student Activities office within 65 days of the activity. Their service hours are recorded and placed on student transcripts.

BEST BUDDIES

The Best Buddies Friendship program builds one-to-one friendships between people with and without intellectual and developmental disabilities (IDD), offering social interactions while improving the quality of life and level of inclusion for a population that is often isolated and excluded. Through their participation, people with IDD form meaningful connections with their peers, gain self-confidence and self-esteem, and share interests, experiences and activities that many other individuals enjoy.
Advisor: Ms. Gagnon & Mrs. Frost-Janvrin- Room F108

MCJROTC

Marine Corps JROTC (MCJROTC) – Community service is a major part of the MCJROTC experience and helps instill a sense of selflessness, civic pride and citizenship.  Community service in MCJROTC can mean anything from marching in parades, to collecting food for those in need, to cleaning the streets, to helping Special Olympics athletes.  Annually MCJROTC contributes between 2,000-2,500 hours to our communities with many students earning 50-75 volunteer hours per year.  Some of our more common community service activities include Wreaths Across America, Veterans, Memorial, and Hampton Christmas parades, food drive marches, the Exeter Breast Cancer Walk, and numerous other events and Color Guard cermonies.  Our biggest community service partner is Special Olympics New Hampshire as every year we play an integral role in the SONH Penguin Plunge fundraising and SONH State Winter and Summer games.  All students are welcome
