The Valley Central Volunteer Club's mission is for students to be involved in the community (both local and school based) through service activities. We hope to encourage the active civic involvement of students in the school. We have a minimum requirement of 20 hours per school year to remain an active member.
The Volunteer Club reaches out to the community and helps out at all of the elementary schools that are a part of the district. We enjoy taking on as many projects as possible and getting as many members involved. This club is always ready to help, and is a very dedicated group of students at the high school. The members also do volunteer work outside of school. We chair different projects and events that the outside community reaches out for volunteers. This club is a very active group and takes pride in their commitment. On-going volunteer work and meeting dates are on the bulletin board outside of room 101. Sign-ups are always posted in the back of room 101.
