White paper explains how service can help students get accepted into
colleges, relays survey results, and explains how Official Service
Transcripts are used to send verified service records to colleges

As community service and service learning becomes more commonplace in
high schools, administrators are seeking ways to ease the burden of
managing, verifying, and reporting service hours. The hours are a boon
to students for their college and scholarship applications, but they can
be a headache to manage. The developers of x2VOL—an
online platform to manage, track, and verify student service hours—has
released a white
paper
exploring best practices in managing high school service
programs and explains how students can send verified service records to
colleges. Click

"We published this white paper so that schools would have a single
document to define the range of service programs in schools, justify why
service is an important part of a well-rounded education, and give a few
examples of successful service programs like KIPP Atlanta Collegiate
School's," said Michele Pitman, founder and CEO of intelliVOL, the
developers of x2VOL.

Community service gives students valuable real-world experience and
charitable organizations access to much needed volunteers. However,
schools can be mired down in the paperwork of managing, verifying, and
reporting the hours students work. This white paper outlines the
benefits to all stakeholders and reports findings from a survey of
college admissions officers about the role of community service and
volunteer hours on a student's chances of being accepted into college.
