Don't Just Count Your Hours, Make Your Hours Count
by Dr. Kristin E. Joos, Alana Rush

Students repeatedly ask the same questions about community service & service learning... How do I find an organization that fits my interests? My schedule? My transportation needs? How do I get in touch with someone at the organization to sign up? What do I need to know before my first visit? How do I log my hours and get them approved? What do I do if I find the service to be boring?

This guide was created to answer such questions.

“Being prepared is an essential part of the volunteer experience. Don’t Just Count Your Hours, Make Your Hours Count engages the reader in a process to determine how they will approach service, and how to create a meaningful opportunity.”   
-  Cathryn Berger Kaye, author of The Complete Guide to Service Learning


"‘Don't Just Count Your Hours, Make Your Hours Count’ shows you how you can make the most of your service and become a changemaker, which will help put you on the path to success in whatever you do in life." 

– Gretchen Zucker, Executive Director, Ashoka’s Youth Venture
