Your relatives in high schools may love this program. They will do meaningful volunteer work for 80-20, earn a beautiful certificate and perhaps win a higher award. The certificate should be helpful in their application for admissions to colleges. Nowadays, colleges strongly favor applicants with volunteer experience for non-profit organizations in their resume.
Every HS volunteer gets a certificate. Some may get an award.
b) how much time and work will meet the minimum standard to get a certificate, and
c) the different levels of awards. The top award is a certificate plus a cash award of $500, which could be converted to a prestigious scholarship, if one wishes.
Apply ASAP. We anticipate this to be a very popular program, because it is such an obvious win-win. The number of applicants may soon exceed our ability to handle it.
