• Community Service Hours for Broughton High School should be performed for a non-profit agency. Questions? Please contact David Cassady, Assistant Principal for Broughton High School, dcassady2@wcpss.net, 919-856-7810 x23263.

    Ideas for Service Hours:

    Approach a teacher or coach at BHS – many times teachers and coaches will have jobs you can do before and after school or during lunch.

    Do you belong to a church, mosque, synagogue? All of these organizations are non-profits. Approach the administrative staff and ask if they have volunteer work you can do.

    Do you still have teachers, staff and coaches at your old elementary and/or middle school you can help? All WCPSS schools are non-profit organizations.

    Do you live close to a church, synagogue, mosque, public library or school? You can offer to volunteer at any of them for service hours.

    Current Community Service Opportunities:

    Run for Young. The Run for Young will be on Sunday, January 13th at 2pm. A great family event for the young and young at heart, is a USATF certified 5k run/walk planned and managed by Christ Church youth. The race honors the memory of Sadiki Young, a Christ Church member and acolyte, who was a senior at Wakefield High School when he died as the passenger in an alcohol-related accident in 2007. In 2008 the Run for Young was founded by Christ Church youth as a way to both honor the memory of Sadiki and raise awareness of safe driving methods for local teens. Today, a percentage of the proceeds goes to local high schools with high participation numbers in the race for safe driving education programs. The remainder goes to the Christ Church Youth Ministry Endowment Fund, which grants funds and scholarships to Christ Church youth and young adults for community projects, retreats, and events. Please visit www.runforyoung.org. One hour of community service will be given to students who run.
