Volunteer Opportunities

Involvement and Leadership Opportunities for
Scholarship Recipients
2013-14 Academic Year

As recognized leaders in the Holt School community, scholarship recipients are required to contribute at least six hours of service per academic year to one of three approved opportunities: Starry, Starry Night Auction, Baccalaureate/ Commencement, Winter Park Arts Festival. We appreciate that many students contribute above and beyond the six-hour requirement, and that some students are also involved in other community and campus groups and events. We believe that engagement on the local level facilitates individual growth and promotes community within the Hamilton Holt School.


Identify service opportunities of interest to you. Please note that there are a specified number of volunteers needed for each event. Events will be staffed on a first-come, first-served basis. Contact the office or person indicated by the specified deadline. You will be asked to select another event if a sufficient number of volunteers has already been identified. Please do not wait until the last minute.

All scholarship recipients are required to submit a Scholarship Service Report by May 31, 2014, in order to be considered for an award renewal for the 2014-15 academic year.  Students will be held accountable under the Rollins Honor Code for service information provided on the report.


Holt School Scholarship recipients must participate in at least one of the three following events.
Note:  Please contact Holtscholarships@rollins.edu prior to May 1, 2014, if you encounter personal hardship that you anticipate will affect your ability to participate in one of these three required opportunities.  Explain your difficulties – provide medical substantiation, as appropriate.  It may be possible to waive or substitute other service opportunities in such cases.
