What counts towards volunteering hours?

We track your volunteer hours under two categories, Automatically tracked activities and Manually tracked activities. Before submitting your volunteer hours to your school, you should double check all hours to ensure that they accurately represent your time spent volunteering. Inaccurate reporting or intentional deception may lead to the permanent suspension of your Schoolhouse account.

For full details, please see our Volunteer Hour Tracking Guidelines.

Automatically Tracked Activities Include:
Hosting academic sessions where learners are present and actively learning
Peer reviewing sessions
Attending an SAT Bootcamp Onboarding session
Completing required or assigned tutor trainings
Attending a New Tutor Onboarding Session

Manually Tracked Activities Include:
Developing materials and resources for a session (within limits—see Volunteer Hour Tracking Guidelines)
Volunteer team activities & meetings (ask your co-leads about which activities count towards volunteering hours)
