High School Form
Community Service Hours

High School students and others are often looking to meet requirements for community service. Litter clean-up in any public area such as roadsides, school grounds, parks, and waterway can qualify. Shelton High students are required to complete 10 hours of community service each year by May 1.

The Anti-Litter Committee is a "pre-approved organization" by the High School, and the Conservation Agent can sign off on your hours spent picking up litter if, and only if, you have documented your efforts as follows:

1. Take photos to document your cleanup.  The photos can just be on your cell phone or camera, but they need to show you actually picked up litter. (If you want us to include your photos in our annual Clean Sweep photo album - blog/Facebook, then email them to conservation@cityofshelton.org.)

2. Download the High School form and fill it out showing exactly what, where, when, and how much you cleaned up.

3. Arrange to have the form signed by the Conservation Agent, Teresa Gallagher. In person:  Come to Room 102 at City Hall (bring your form and photos). Call or email first to make the Conservation Agent will be in the office (203) 924-1555 x1315.  Alterative method: Scan the completed form to the conservation agent and attached photos to conservation@cityofshelton.org. The form will be signed, scanned back in, and emailed back.

And don't forget the annual Housatonic River Cleanup. Students can earn up to 8 community service hours (organizers of that event will sign the forms on the spot). This is usually the last Saturday in April.
