Valor offers service opportunities locally, nationally, and internationally with faith-based organizations whose primary focus is serving poor and marginalized communities around the globe.
Students can serve locally for a few hours at a time or participate in a Discovery Experience trip domestically or overseas. Our Discovery Experience trips last anywhere from a few days to two weeks, and all require that a baseline number of service hours have been completed locally.
Service hours must be fulfilled with Christian faith-based organizations. Service opportunities include but are not limited to:
- Volunteer work with local partners, including pre-approved partners and ministries
- All local, national and international Discovery Experiences
- Featured group and individual service opportunities
- Pre-approved volunteer work at Valor that supports our vision and mission, without receiving financial compensation, academic credit or dual service hour credits
Students serve a minimum of 25 approved hours per enrollment year for a total of 100 service hours required for graduation. Discovery partners strictly with faith-based organizations which serve the poor and marginalized and will only approve service hours which meet this requirement. During the summer months which precede the start of the academic year, incoming freshmen and transfer students may begin fulfilling service hours.
