Please refer to the Paly Community Service Guidelines, which contains specific information on what volunteer hours count and what hours do not count towards Paly Community Service.
Welcome! We want to clarify the process and tools used for tracking Community Service at Paly and verifying hours for the Presidents Volunteer Service Award (PVSA). HelperHelper is the only online application used to track community service hours. Using this tool as well as performing community service at Paly is completely voluntary - there is not a Community Service graduation requirement although individual classes may require some form of community service. By using HelperHelper and submitting valid community service hours for a Presidents Volunteer Service Award, a student confirms they have read the Paly Community Service page on paly.net, understand the Paly Community Service process and guidelines, and agree to follow them. HelperHelper entries that do not adhere to the process nor meet the guidelines will be deleted from HelperHelper with a brief note to the student explaining why. Students may re-enter the deleted community service activity into HelperHelper with the corrected information that aligns with the process, procedures, and guidelines. All community service hours must be entered on HelperHelper (HH). If you need help with accessing your HH account, please contact Karla Larson.
