Reflective-Supports global and ethical citizenship Impactful-Makes a positive impact in the community. Applicable-Aligns with interests and career goals.

FCPS middle and high schools use a tool called x2VOL to support students with finding, tracking, and verifying service hours.


  • For Nonprofits: Nonprofit organizations may create a free account to post service opportunities directly to students.  If you have questions please contact FCPSServiceLearning@fcps.edu.

     

  • FCPS middle and high school teachers may create groups in order to manage and approve student service hours toward school, course, or club goals (examples: government and civics courses, NHS and other honor societies, Career and Technical Education courses, or other courses that have service hours expectations).  Any FCPS MS or HS teacher who would like to request an account may do so by emailing FCPSServiceLearning@fcps.eduwith their full name, FCPS email address, current FCPS role, and school placement.
