Summer of Service and Fun
We at Lake Braddock Secondary School encourage all rising 7th and 8th grade students to use fun summer activities - like sports, arts, reading, or being outdoors - to volunteer and make students’ communities healthier, greener, and stronger. When students return to school in August, their Social Studies teacher will help them use the x2Vol software system to record their hours and reflect on their experiences. Any 8th graders who have used x2Vol already, should please continue to do that over the summer as they volunteer.
To encourage young people to have fun while performing community service, youth, ages 5-18, in the U.S. can visit YSA.org/ to tell their volunteer story, get inspiration and planning resources.
