Together We Can enables Kent students to participate in Community Outreach in a meaningful way. Student volunteers have the opportunity to select a cause, one or more non-profit partners and their particular role on a grade-level team. Each team will then create collective impact events in spring and fall to support their effort of choice. Types of collective impact events include:

KENT REQUIREMENTS

Each school year, the following hours are necessary to complete the recommended grade level commitment:

  • 5th Graders: 5 hours

  • 6th Graders: 6 hours

  • 7th Graders: 7 hours

  • 8th Graders: 10 hours

TRACKING HOURS

Now, volunteers can track hours through Track it Forward. For students, credit will be applied to Kent requirements. Tracked hours will be tallied each month and publicly celebrated. To track your hours, search Together We Can Kent on the Track it Forward page and add your email and password.  Then start tracking!
