Love Our Land Service Seal Program

Program Overview

 

At Love Our Land, we believe in the power of youth engagement and community service. Our Volunteer Program provides an exciting opportunity for high school students to make a meaningful impact on the environment while earning a Community Service Seal on their high school diploma.  The state of Ohio now mandates that in order to graduate, students must have earned a minimum of  2 seals, but they may earn more. . This program offers two options for participants:

 

20 Volunteer Hours: Students can choose to complete 20 hours of volunteer service with Love Our Land. These volunteer hours will be dedicated to meaningful and informative projects related to our mission.  We will immerse the student into the many different areas of the nonprofit and work with the students as to where they may want to focus their attention.

 

Community Project: Alternatively, students can opt to work on a project that aligns with Love Our Land's goals. The specifics of the project will be discussed and decided upon once the student is accepted into the program.  The equivalent amount of time will be spent on the project as the volunteer hours.

 

What You Will Learn

 

By participating in Love Our Land's Volunteer Program, students will have the opportunity to:

 

Work Collaboratively: Learn to work effectively in a team, developing teamwork and communication skills that are essential for success in any field.

 

Nonprofit Operations: Gain insights into how nonprofit organizations manage their time, resources, and projects to achieve their mission.

 

Real-World Project Experience: Experience firsthand how projects are planned, executed, and completed in the real world, providing you with valuable skills for your future endeavors.
