Number of Students
Students are able to explore their interests and learn what it truly means to give of their "time, talent, and treasure."
Students can also learn about the needs of their community, track hours and witness how their giving legacy is changing the world, get rewarded and recognized for doing great work.
Points are used to recognize students for the legacies they are building through civic engagement.
Students can earn points by completing service hours, participating in our online education platform, creating a profile, writing blogs, affiliating with a non-profit or organization and inviting friends to join MyGivingPoint.org.
Every volunteer hour is verified by the nonprofit being served or an affiliated organization working with a teenager.
The result is an authentic civic resume for students with real volunteer experience alongside safe and accurate hour tracking for organizations.
