Community Service

Community service is an essential element in the IDEA education. All scholars must complete 100 hours of community service in order to graduate, which strengthens character, promotes empathy, builds leadership skills, and instills the value of serving others.
 
Community service events scheduled for this fall include
 
September 14 | Ward 7 Day/Art All Night @ IDEA
 
September 21 | Science Lab Clean Up @ IDEA 
 
September 22 | Ovarian Cancer Walk @ Westfield Annapolis Mall
 
October 5 | East of the River Book Festival in Anacostia  
 
October 19 | Martha's Table (tentative)
 
For help finding other community service activities, please see your advisory teacher, CTE Director Andrea Zimmerman, Dean of Culture Lori Briscoe, or Academic Counselor Sara Sharpe.
 
To verify community service hours, scholars must submit this form to someone from the organization with which they're volunteering. Scholars are responsible for submitting completed forms to Dean Briscoe or Ms. Sharpe.
 
Please refer to IDEA's graduation requirements for details about IDEA's community service requirements.
