Pearl River High School is now using an online tracking and reporting system for all service hours called x2VOL that is accessible through Naviance Student.  This system eliminates the need for paper forms and centralizes the information.  X2VOL allows students to enter their service hours online at any time, as well as check and register for volunteer opportunities, receive reminders about the opportunities and print a service hour log that can be used as a reference for college applications and the National Honor Society.

Current hours have been transferred to the new system for those who have completed services.  From this point on, all service hours need to be entered into the x2VOL system through Naviance Student.  Paper forms should no longer be submitted to the Guidance Office.  The students must register as soon as possible.  Please follow the instructions or click on the links below for a step-by-step tutorial and video.

First you must log in to your Naviance account.  If you do not know your Naviance login credentials, please ask your counselor for help.

  1. Click on the x2VOL Link under “Resources” on the left-hand side of your home screen in Naviance Student.
  2. If you are asked to put in your Last Name and Student ID Number, please do so.
  3. Complete your x2VOL profile the first time you access x2VOL.
  4. Start logging your hours in x2VOL!

Please click for x2Vol FAQs.
