Community Service

Message from the Counseling Department

PLEASE NOTEPlease ensure a valid email address is entered for the person who is to verify your hours.  If an email address is unknown, a signed paper document must be brought to the Counseling Office after the activity is entered so the work can be accepted.  We want everyone to receive the credit, and award, you earned and deserve.  As always, come to the Counseling Office if you have questions or concerns.

Community Service Requirements

Pearl River High School has a program requirement that students must achieve forty (40) hours of community service.  Every school year, students who earn 25 hours or more are eligible for a community service award.

The deadline for community service awards consideration for grades 9, 10 and 11 is May 7, 2024; and the deadline for seniors is May 14, 2024. You must have at least 25 hours in the current school year to be considered for an award.

The COVID pandemic presented challenges that had impacted the availability of community service opportunities. Therefore, the traditional advisement of 10 hours per school year does not apply to the years 2022-2023 and 2023-2024. That said, the high school’s graduation service requirement is 30 hours for the class of 2024. 

Community Service Announcement

Pearl River High School uses 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.  Paper forms should no longer be submitted to the Counseling Office but can be used as verification for hours served.  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.

The Pearl River Lions Club is sponsoring this year's Keep Rockland Beautiful cleanup day in Pearl River on Saturday, April 13, 10 am to 2 pm.  The Club has identified 8 areas in the town that need trash removed. We are asking local community organizations to participate and to take one of the areas for cleanup. If you are interested in participating in this county-wide effort, please contact Ralph Fasano by email at or call by phone at 845-709-1935 for further information and to coordinate.

Gilda’s Club Westchester offers a wide range of volunteer opportunities for people to contribute their time and skills.  Volunteers can help raise awareness, assist in fundraising, and work with members in the community to help make a difference in the lives of individuals and families impacted by cancer. 

Keep Rockland Beautiful is always looking for volunteers for Cleanups.  Every April & May, all across Rockland, thousands of volunteers help remove litter from our streets, parks and streams during the "Great American Cleanup."  The campaign is also an amazing teaching tool as they educate & empower people of all ages to take action on behalf of our environment.  Interested students may reach them via email at:
