  • When will my service hours be updated?
    Your service team typically counts service hours monthly. The spreadsheet includes the date when they were last updated. If you see the amount on the spreadsheet may be incorrect, feel free to reach out to Olivia Putnam or Ms. Stone.
  • Where can I turn in my service hours?
    You can turn in your service hours to the mailbox right outside of Ms. Stone's room, R100, located just across from Student Services.
  • Can I use JAGS service hours for other organizations?
    Yes! Any community service you turn in to JAGS can be used for other organizations. JAGS events and service opportunities, such as Adopt-a-Family, may also be used elsewhere.
  • What are the requirements to graduate JAGS?
    JAGS Students must successfully complete a JAGS, four-year course plan, 80 hours of community service, a portfolio, and a capstone project to receive a Certificate of Global Studies from Jackson High School and the International Studies School Network.
  • Will parents have to pay for every trip?
