  • All VKSU hours must be documented on a VKSU Service Verification Form that you obtain from the VKSU office prior to your volunteer activity.
  • Letters, emails, faxes, and/or phone calls from the individual agencies will not be accepted.
  • VKSU will not award volunteer credit to any volunteer who fails to follow these policies and procedures!

The Process

  • Get into our database

    • If you have never been to our office before: Print and complete our Application Form (pdf and Word versions here). This form is also available in the VKSU office, Student Center Room 267.

    • You only have to complete this form one time, no matter how often you volunteer.

  • Select where you want to perform your community service from our options

    • Please review the information below and select two or three agencies. Keep in mind any restrictions that the court may have imposed on where you may perform the community service.

    • Bring your completed application form and your list of selected agencies to VKSU, Student Center Room 267, during our regular business hours.

    • VKSU staff will provide you with contact information for the agencies you have selected. You will also be given a Service Verification Form for you to document your hours. It is your responsibility to then contact the agencies to see which agency's needs fit best with your schedule.

    • Note: The Service Verification Form cannot be faxed to you or sent to you via email. You must come to the VKSU office to receive it.

  • After you have performed your community service hours

    • Both you and the agency complete the Service Verification Form, and then you return the form to the VKSU office.

    • We will prepare a letter documenting your community service. Please allow 48 hours for the letter to be prepared.
