Helpful Information

Recording Your Service Hours

Service hours will be recorded at Mobile Serve. To read the "Getting Started Guide" about how to create an account and log hours click here. Then begin logging! Hours from the summer are due 10/31.

Frequently Asked Questions about Service Hours

1. How many service hours do I need? For freshmen year, your hours are taken care of in your Freshmen Seminar class. For every other year you need to submit at least 10 service hours.

2. What if I do more than 10 hours? Log those too! The number of hours you record might influence awards, scholarships, and other forms of recognition at Villa and beyond. It's also a good idea to have a thorough record for when you apply to college.

3. Where can I do my service hours? Nearly anywhere that you are making a positive impact! Check the boards in the cafeteria for current opportunities.

4. Can I get paid for my service hours? Nope, then it wouldn't be service anymore.

5. When should I log my hours? Hours that you did over the summer are due on 10/31. For every other time of year, hours are due within a month of completing them! 5 are due in January and 5 are due in May.

6. What if my supervisor doesn't want to give me their email address? Please use one of the other 2 ways to verify your hours: open the mobilserve app on your phone while at the service site and either (1) attach your location or (2) have the supervisor sign on your phone while you submit the hours.
