Community Service Information and Sites

A list of our OSC-approved community service sites and relevant important information can be found below. You must perform your community service at the organizations listed in this document.


For all community service sites, you should schedule work in advance. If you schedule work and then find you cannot do it, you must call the organization and cancel. When circumstances prevent you from working with your first choice organization, you are expected to make arrangements with another site in order to complete your community service hours on time.

It is your responsibility to provide OSC with verification of the hours you work. Please note: WE WILL CALL TO VERIFY THAT YOU DID IN FACT WORK. Turning in a false verification form will result in new OSC charges. Make sure you take the form with you. The organizations do not stock verification forms. And, please make sure you give the verification forms to OSC by the date stated on your resolution agreement.
