Community Service

Nevada Promise requires students to complete community service hours, no later than June 1. Please see the list of ideas for community service organizations. Please note that these are suggestions and there are many more organizations where you can volunteer. If you have questions about what is an eligible organization, please e-mail promise@gbcnv.edu.

What Counts as Community Service

Community service is time contributed to a nonprofit or public service organization. The community should be benefitting from the work you do! Community service performed to satisfy the requirements of GBC’s Nevada Promise Scholarship must not include religious proselytizing (recruiting), or service for which the student receives any type of compensation, or which directly benefits a family member.

Community service performed to satisfy the eligibility requirements for participation in the Nevada Promise Scholarship Program must not:

  • Result in compensation, payment or remuneration of any kind for the student.
  • Directly benefit a member of the family of the applicant or student, as applicable.
  • Include paid or unpaid internships.
  • Include donation of money or items as community service.
  • Include participation in fund-raising events, but may include volunteering to assist in the administration of the event. For example, participating as a "walker" in a "cancer walk" to raise money for cancer research does not qualify as community service; but volunteering to assist with registration, set-up or similar activities at the event may qualify as community service.

Community service may be performed with or under the direction of a faith-based organization, but must not include religious proselytizing or persuasion.
