(Bright Futures) Community Service and Volunteering

In order to earn a Bright Futures Scholarship, students must complete duirng high school either 30, 75 or 100 volunteer service hours depending on the scholarship you are striving for. Instead of volunteer hours, students can complete 100 paid work hours toward any of the scholarships. In addition, by completing a minimum of 75 volunteer hours OR 100 paid work hours and submitting your required essay reflection, students will earn one-half (0.5) credit of an elective towards their Lyman Diploma. Use the links below to access the Service Plan and Logs which are required to document your hours.




When can I start documenting my Volunteer Service/Paid Work hours?

Your hours must be completed during high school, therefore you can start your service during the summer prior to entering high school.

What do I do once I complete my required Volunteer Service/Paid Work hours?

Once you have completed your hours and have them logged on the Log sheets with all signatures, turn in your completed Service Plan and Logs and your one-page essay to your School Counselor. Once received, your Counselor will enter your hours on your official transcript which will be reported to the FL DOE after graduation. You will also receive .5 elective credit.

When are my hours due?

May 1st of your senior year.
