Service-learning is an extremely important opportunity for each RHP and Renaissance student. Even in difficult times, it is important to give back and help those in the community. Unfortunately, due to the high-risk nature of service-learning, the Schools will not require students to complete any service learning hours for the 2020-2021 academic year.

Whether they find themselves giving back to the local community or around the world, Rolling Hills Prep and Renaissance students understand that there is an obligation to serve the greater good whenever you have the chance.
- Through opportunities announced at school by staff or faculty, such as the Blue Butterfly Preserve Workday, the Huskies with Heart Backpack initiative, or the L.A. Food Bank project.
- Pre-approved community service and service learning initiatives contained in this list.
- Individual volunteer efforts that are previously approved by Rachel Rubin, Service Learning Coordinator and World Language Department Chair.
Approval and Recording
Volunteer log forms for all service work must be filled out, signed by a supervisor (who is not related to the student) from the organization for which students are volunteering, and turned in to Adriana Alejandre for hours to be counted.
