Congratulations to the Recipients of the MiraCosta Presidential Service Award & MiraCosta Volunteer Service Award!
This year 22 students earned the Presidential Service Award (100+ volunteer hours) and 10 students earned the Volunteer Service Award (50+ volunteer hours). Collectively, those students served 5,152.25 volunteer hours!
Additionally, congratulations to all the MiraCosta students who participated in the Service Learning and Volunteer Program throughout the 2020-2021 school year! Despite the many challenges this year, students found the time to virtually give back to their campus and community.
MiraCosta students completed 5,354.8* service learning hours and 5,325.4* volunteer hours from Summer 2020 through Spring 2021!
*Tentative, we may still receive more service hours toward the end of the spring semester.
Frequently Asked Questions for Students
Service learning is a teaching method that incorporates community-based activities into the curricula. Unlike volunteers, service learning students are required to connect service experiences to course content through reading, writing, and dialog.
Students interested in the Volunteer Program, are encouraged to visit the "Volunteer Program" webpage of the website to learn more about the program, download a volunteer booklet, and read about the service awards. Any student can participate in the volunteer program and can complete their service hours virtually or in person at their discretion.
