Student Volunteer Information

Links & Forms

At Pivot Charter School, we are committed to fostering a spirit of community involvement and personal growth among our students. Participating in community service not only enriches the lives of others but also helps our students develop important life skills and strengthen their college and scholarship applications. 

For students interested in earning a Bright Futures Scholarship, community service is a vital component. This prestigious scholarship program in Florida rewards students for their academic achievements and community involvement throughout their high school careers. To qualify for Bright Futures, students must complete a minimum number of volunteer service hours to meet specific academic criteria.

We encourage all students to explore the carious community service opportunities available through our school and local organizations. Engaging in these activities will not only contribute to the betterment of our community, but will also support student's in meeting the Bright Futures Scholarship requirements.

Local Volunteer Organizations

This list provides a selection of agencies that students have typically used to complete their volunteer hours, serving as a guide for students and parents to explore potential service opportunities. However, students are free to choose any organization they like, and are encouraged to reach out directly to the agency, business, or community of their choice to inquire about volunteer opportunities.
