Volunteer Corps
Each year, every student in the NAF program must complete a certain number of hours of volunteering in order to remain in the program.
Volunteer hours vary depending on the age and grade level of the student and a portion of the hours must be completed each term during the school year. Students may be required to create their own volunteer project, donate time at their school, or serve as student advisers for one year.
