Community Service

Developing compassionate and contributing members of society is one of our top priorities at Ma’ayanot. With this goal in mind, Ma’ayanot requires that each student participate in at least four community service projects each semester, for a total of eight per year. 

Students are asked to keep the following in mind when selecting Community Service projects:

  • They must be unpaid.
  • They cannot involve assisting members of your family.
  • All potential services not listed in the Community Service Guide must be approved, in advance, by the community service coordinator in order for it to fulfill the requirements.
  • Working on a program at school as a member of a particular committee does not count toward the service requirement.
  • The community service requirement is meant to enhance the students’ school year. Therefore, only community service completed between September and June will count toward the Community Service requirement. 

Documentation of fulfillment of the community service requirement is due in December and April. A student who has not completed her community service requirement will not receive her report card. 

Mrs. Ivy Weiner, our Community Service Coordinator, is available to help students find meaningful community service opportunities. Please contact her at with any questions about community service.
