Go to your Naviance Dashboard and click on the “Careers” tab. Choose the x2Vol option under “Experiential Exploration.”  Comment end 

  •  On your Dashboard, click the green button, Add Hours.

  •  You will be on your Activity Log page.

  • Click the blue button, Create New.

  • Follow the prompts in the section Create a Personal Project:  Activity Name, Project Description, Hours amount, date etc. You can add an attachment if needed.

  • Be sure to enter the name and email of the person who can Verify your hours. If you do not include this information, you will delay the approval process. 

  •  Recurring Project: if this project is something you do on a regular basis, make sure you check the box, Make this a Recurring Project. It will save to your Activity Log and allow you to just add the hours and dates in the future, instead of logging the entire activity from scratch each time.

  •  Multiple Dates: if you’ve done a project over the span of multiple dates, you should enter the last date of the experience and provide some details in the notes section. If you put more than 16 hours in a single day, you must include the details about specific dates and times the service was completed in the “notes” section. For example, putting 30 hours in one day and saying “worked as a camp counselor” will not be acceptable. Please include the details that provide clarification, such as: “I worked 5 hours a day on July 10 - July 15, 2023 for a total of 30 hours.” Your hours will not be approved without the details. 

  •  Under Apply Hours to Goals click Apply to all non-exclusive goals. This will allow you to apply your hours to the President's Volunteer Service Award and/or Senior Service Cord, if you would like to be considered for these awards.

  •  Honor Code: you must check the honor code before submitting your hours. You are claiming that the information you submitted is accurate and true.

  • Be sure to click  Submit at the end. 

All volunteer activities are subject to the UA Rules for Community Service:

  • Completed without pay.

  • Completed for someone other than a family member.

  • Completed for the school or service agency/organization. Volunteering with “for-profit” companies is not considered community service, unless you are participating in a community event sponsored by a “for-profit” company.  

  • Youth in the Booth does not count as community service, unless you have donated your pay and can produce a receipt.

  • All political activities must be non-partisan (i.e., working for the League of Women Voters or Get Out the Vote. NOT - working for a specific campaign for a candidate)

  • Extended service trips/camps can receive a maximum of 18 hours per day. This includes 6th grade camp (maximum of 48 hours for 6th grade camp).

  • Religious activities count with the exceptions of teaching or preaching.
