The mission of Tigers in Service is to facilitate, encourage, and support student volunteerism in the community. Volunteer service must be performed for a non-profit organization.
Volunteer Opportunity Hopewell had been busy getting ready for their annual 8th Grade Formal. We are desperately in need of volunteers to help out with set up, working the different venues during the party and clean up. Thought maybe you could reach out to those Tigers In Service and see if anyone is interested in some volunteer hours. The dance is Friday, May 17th from 7:00-9:30. We could use help as early as 3:30 to start the set up. Contact Rita Wells.
We are a local sports team looking for volunteers. We can give any students that are willing community service hours. This includes CAS hours for IB.
The volunteers would be needed to do two things: a, watch for certain signs when we practice, and notify of us of these signs when they occur. Such signs would be improper defensive techniques, bad form and so on.
The second responsibility would be to do basic offense against the team as a whole, so that we can work on team dynamics. This involves little more than throwing a ball in a specified manner, which can be taught in less than 10 minutes.
The sport is called Goalball, a sport played by the blind and visually impaired. This is a link showing a professional game. First 1/4 Finals European Goalball Championships 2011(1/2) The students would be working only with adults, as this is an adult team looking to go international in the future. It would be an ongoing event, every Sunday in Hutto, for between 3 and 5 hours. They are welcome to come as long as they are able.
If there is interest, Jonathon Taylor can be contacted here at email@example.com
Ongoing Volunteer Activity- Texans In Motion at Scott & White Healthcare is in need of volunteers to assemble 200 informational packets. These packets will be distributed during car seat inspections throughout 11 central Texas counties. The organization will provide volunteers with packet supplies/materials. Volunteers will have one week to complete packet assembly. Arrangements will be made to deliver and pick up packets at Stony Point High School. Please contact Sherri Cabrera at (512) 336-3411 for additional information.

Tigers in Service is a student volunteer program. Students who complete 80 hours of service throughout high school will receive a cord to wear at graduation. The 80 hours is an average of 20 hours per year of enrollment. This means one year you may only have volunteered 10 hours, but the next year you volunteer 35 hours. As long as your total volunteer hours add up to 20 hours per year of enrollment at Stony Point, you will qualify. Our goal is that Stony Point High School takes its place as a contributing member of our community.
