Summer is a great time for students to get involved in a service-learning project and earn Student Service Learning (SSL) hours. Check out the organizations and opportunities that are already approved for MCPS SSL hours. As a reminder, the state of Maryland requires students to earn 75 SSL hours in order to graduate. Students can begin collecting those hours the summer before 6th grade.
There also are a lot of opportunities for students to serve in leadership positions—both at the county and the state levels. Students are encouraged to visit the Student Affairs website for a full list of opportunities.
