Summer of Service students

SCUSD’s Summer of Service (SOS) gives incoming seventh, eighth and ninth graders an opportunity to work together to improve their community through service projects aimed at addressing neighborhood issues and concerns.

SOS also serves as a great opportunity for students to get to know their new campus and make new friends. Additionally, studies have shown that participation in the SOS Program can lead to better grades, better behavior and improved attendance in addition to a deeper school connection.

High school students that complete 120 hours of the program are eligible to receive five credits towards their graduation as well as the opportunity to participate in an overnight leadership camp at the end of program.
