Service Activities

Pre-approval information


Below are activities that do not require a pre-approval form to be filled out.


Broadly speaking, if you volunteer for a nonprofit organization that delivers services to people, it probably qualifies for CAS Service hours.


If you don't see your activity below, you must fill out a pre-approval form. Copies are in Ms. Morrison's room (302) or can be downloaded from the North Meck IB Web site. Or outside the IB Office on “The Great Wall of CAS”. If in doubt, fill it out!


This list will be updated periodically as we learn of more opportunities, so check back to see if something you plan to do has been listed.


This list has two parts: Part I is a general description of activities that don't need pre-approval; Part II are specific sponsors that don't need pre-approval.
