“Helping, fixing, and serving represent three different ways of seeing life. When you help, you see life as weak. when you fix, you see life as broken. When you serve, you see life as whole. Fixing and helping may be the work of the ego, and service the work of the soul.” – (2017, August 7) Helping, Fixing, or Serving? Lion's Roar
Below is a list of questions you may have about Luke Center and service opportunities. If your question is not addressed here, please email email@example.com with your inquiry.
Punahou School does not have a specific service hour requirement for graduation. Currently, our Senior Capstone course requires 22 hours of direct service that must be completed during the duration of the course. Clubs such as National Honors Society or Key Club may have more specific service hour requirements so please check in with the advisors of those clubs for more information.
Punahou has developed an online log for service hours. Many students find it helpful to have such a record when it’s time to apply for a job or college. Students can access the log via the Resources page on myPunahou.
Students looking to log their service hours may login to Global Aloha to do so. The system allows students to log service hours, find ways of getting involved with other student projects, and learn more about current service opportunities in our community.
The Luke Leaders Program is a hub of new, innovative, youth-led ideas that tackle some of our community’s most profound issues. If you are a student in grades 9 – 12 who has aspirations to build peace, organize community, to fight injustice, to take a stand, or to change the world, then Luke Leaders is for you!
This is a uniquely youth-led program. Though Luke Center and Ceeds of Peace staff will supervise and facilitate discussion, the voices and choices of the youth will be on the forefront. Each year we will launch a new cohort of Luke Leaders who are led through a flexible approach to executing some of their big ideas. The cohort’s group sessions will be held at the Luke Center from 9:00 am – 12:00 pm three times a year with individual meetings between each session.
While Luke Center for Public Service is available to assist students in finding or developing service opportunities, students should contact the NJHS advisor, Yun Choe for specific questions, like numbers of required hours.
While Luke Center encourages service and seeks to inspire interest among students, it does not require such service. We do not coordinate groups of students to volunteer. We actively promote appropriate opportunities and make information available to the students who then contact the organization directly if the opportunity fits their interest and schedule. While many students choose to participate, Luke Center cannot guarantee that a certain number of students will volunteer for any service activity.
The Luke Center for Public Service supports a wide range of service opportunities that are appropriate for students, and we actively encourage all students to engage in volunteer activities that align with their interests and schedule. If your organization has an opportunity that you would like us to consider, please fill out this Volunteer Request Form and send it and all opportunity information (fliers, websites, etc.) to firstname.lastname@example.org.
