Each Month, Pleasant Valley Service-Learning hosts an event that gives freshman and sophomore students opportunities to earn service time. These events allow students to try various community service projects. Students are provided school transportation, when necessary. Our goal is to give freshmen and sophomores not only a variety of community service options, but enables students with transportation issues opportunities they may not have had. Take a look at pictures, on the picture link, of some past events.
