Educating, fund raising, writing an article, giving a report, passing out information, project fairs, and working on a project (everyone involved) count towards service hours. It is very important to report this information on your reports whether it is an LPM or DPM report. This is the only way MN WT is able to really know the impact we are having with the foundations we support. Service hours are always under reported.
Service hours should include time that ALL chapter members worked on a project. This includes committee work, planning meetings, set, the actual project, clean up, and preparing final reports. Figure service hours for EVERYONE that worked on a project, not just the committee or chair.
How are service hours calculated: Number of individuals working on project X Number of hours worked
Example: Games in the Park - One Project for Youth and Community Involvement Committee meeting: 5 members X 1.5 hrs = 7.5
Buy prizes: 2 members X 2 hrs = 4 Set up: 10 members X .75 hrs = 7.5
Running activity: 15 members/volunteers X 2 hrs = 30
Take down: 10 members X .5 = 5
Write up, report at meeting, newsletter article: 1 member X 1 hr = 1
Total Service Hours: 55
Total Money Raised: $500.00
If your chapter missed reporting for a trimester, it is never too late to send the information in! Either send a separate report for that trimester or include it in the trimester that you are reporting on. Submit you Program Manager Trimester Report.
