Garrick Yau,




A subcommittee of the Curriculum Committee

Provide information about the Student Service Learning program & related volunteer opportunities


As MCCPTA's new SSL subcommittee chair, I will provide updates around the MCPS student service learning program and related volunteer opportunities. I will also look for opportunities to launch MCCPTA sponsored SSL volunteer programs and programs that are jointly sponsored with PTAs and PTSAs. 
Below are several key SSL program resources. Please feel free to share them with your school listservs (most appropriate for middle and high schools since those are the years when students can/must earn SSL hour credits toward the graduation requirement).

Overview of the SSL program, including links to required forms

Database of all current volunteer opportunities preapproved for SSL

Database of all current organizations preapproved for SSL

Online search for volunteer opportunities

Montgomery County Volunteer Center's monthly e-newsletter subscription page, which highlights volunteer opportunities (including many designated as SSL preapproved)

MCPS requirements to obtain and retain SSL sponsorship status
