**PLEASE READ THE MESSAGE BELOW CAREFULLY: THERE ARE NEW CHANGES TO THE FORM!**
IF YOU DO NOT FILL OUT THE FORM CORRECTLY, YOU WILL NOT GET POINTS. I WILL EMAIL YOU INFORMING YOU IF THE FORM WAS FILLED OUT INCORRECTLY AND YOU MUST RESUBMIT IT IF YOU WANT POINTS. :)
This form will be used to receive your independent service hours for the Spring 2019 semester. Any volunteering that was done between December 14th and May 2nd can count for independent service hours this semester. Points will be logged depending on how quickly your contacts respond back to me, so please be patient if your points don't get logged right away!! This is very important and I cannot stress it enough.
Actives can receive 8 independent service hours, pledges 7, and associates 5.
This form will close approximately a week before elections. If you have a volunteering commitment that lasts until reading day, please contact me.
IMPORTANT!!! PLEDGES:Halfway deadline is March if hours are not submitted by Feb 25th at 11:59 PM, it is unlikely they will get verified by the deadline.Initiation is 4/9, and independent hours MUST be submitted by 4/3. THIS WILL NOT CHANGE, SO PLEASE BE PROACTIVE!!
**If you volunteer at Carle Hospital, you can get your service hours verified quickly by uploading a picture of your hours log on the form.. If you don't have access to your hours log, use your student leader's information when filling out the form.
**If you volunteer at OSF Heart of Mary Healthcare, a law called HIPAA prohibits the volunteer coordinator from releasing your hours until you give them permission to do so. If you have permission to get your hours released, please note that in the last section of the form! If you fill out the form and don't note that, I will email you asking to get permission. If you have a picture of your hours log, upload that on the form instead.
If you're interested in other independent service hour opportunities, APO has a database linking to multiple organizations that brothers have an opportunity to volunteer with. They have long-term commitments or specific time requirements that aren't suitable for APO brothers to volunteer with as a group.
