The Barrington High School volunteer program provides resources for students to become involved in and connect to our community. Volunteering is not required, but students are able to earn high school credit through volunteering and therefore there are guidelines to the program. All approved volunteer opportunities can be found on the Student Volunteer Opportunities List. Any activity not on this list must be pre approved prior to volunteering. Any volunteering that exceeds 30 hours must complete and turn in a verification form to Mrs. Horcher.
