A few questions and answers regarding service hours:
Q. Are religious organizations acceptable for service hours? Specifically working in the nursery at church or participating in a mission trip?

A. The student can begin earning the hours in the summer after the end of 8th grade and prior to the start of 9th grade.
Q. Do all service hours need to be earned from the same organization or can you “job hop”?
A. You can acquire your service hours from any organization you choose, and from multiple organizations.
