Grades 9-12 Gold Service Project Information

Gold Service Project Information

Gold Service Projects must be approved by the Faith Alive Program Director or Faith Alive Committee BEFORE the project is started. Failure to do so will result in a loss of credit for the project. Gold Service Projects have a minimum of 10 hours served for each project. A minimum of 60% of required service hours MUST be gold service hours. The hours must be served at an outside organization or church. The follow up form must be completed before hours are awarded.

Completion of the Faith Alive Service Learning Program is a requirement for graduation from Schlarman Academy. The Faith Alive program is designed to encourage students to personally undertake the message and mission of Jesus by serving those in need. Our guidelines for all projects are the Corporal and Spiritual Works of Mercy. Each Gold Project will be approved on the basis of how well it encompasses those Works and how much direct person-to-person contact will occur.
