Community Service Opportunities
Beverly Vista Middle School Community Service Vision:
It is the hope of Beverly Vista Middle School that through volunteer work students will find their passion by giving back to their community and improving the world we all live in. Through this work during middle school, we feel that BVMS Bulldogs will become proud, lifelong volunteers.
COMMUNITY SERVICE HOURS MUST BE EARNED THROUGH A NON-PROFIT (CHARITY) ORGINIZATION, NOT A BUSINESS AND NOT VERIFIED (SIGNED) BY A PARENT, RELATIVE OR FAMILY FRIEND.
Community service hours can be earned through a variety of activities at school, on BVMS campus, at other BHUSD schools, Beverly Hills Community and with other organizations.

BEVERLY HILLS & LOCAL COMMUNITY OPPORTUNITIES:
WHAT MATTERS TO YOU? HOW DO YOU WANT TO GIVE BACK? (Community Service Ideas)
Animals: Do you love animals? Local animal shelters are always in need of volunteers. Contact a local shelter and speak with a volunteer coordinator to see what help is needed.
Seniors: Our community has many senior citizens who would relish the time and help that a teen could lend. Beverly Hills has senior centers and private nursing home where volunteers are needed. Even a small amount of time with a senior can make a difference. You can help seniors learn how to use a computer and email to stay in touch with their own grandchildren. You could adopt a senior citizen as a “grand-friend” and write letters to them.
Elementary Schools: You can contact your former teachers from Hawthorne and Horace Mann to offer help in the classroom or contact the PTA.
Environment: Do you care deeply about the threats facing our environment and have an interest in helping our community “go green.” Participate in a community cleanup day; or help clear hiking trails or perform beach cleanups.
