For information regarding acceptable community service projects contact:
Diana Vita (831) 624 1821 ext 2780 or Carmel High School Assistant Principal, Craig Tuana ext. 2788

**Please note that not all non-paid volunteer work for religious organizations necessarily meets the Carmel High School definition of community service. Helping an organization with fund raising events, childcare, and clerical duties are considered acceptable community service activities, whereas activities designed to promote religious beliefs and the participation in religious services do not meet the CHS community service criteria. If you are unsure whether your proposed community service project meets Carmel High's criteria please speak with either Mr. Tuana or Mrs. Vita
