Green Cord Program Encourages Student Volunteerism
The newly established Green Cord Program at Taft High 7-12 in Lincoln City encourages students to improve their community through volunteerism. And local non-profit entities are invited to participate by signing up to seek volunteer help in all the good work they do.
Any community organization looking for high school volunteers may go online to fill out a contact form. This information will be verified and posted on a “help wanted” board for student volunteers. The process is being overseen by the school counselors.
Under the Green Cord Community Service Award Program, freshmen, sophomores and juniors who document 100 hours of community service in an academic year will receive special recognition at the end of the year. In addition, graduating seniors who complete 100 hours of service will receive a green honor cord to wear during graduation as a symbol of their achievement.
