The Community Service Hours (CSH) Program is designed to provide youth with clear opportunities to take action for climate by supporting Youth4Climate while earning community service hours in the process. This program is geared towards students who are interested in developing skills and taking on concrete tasks instead of (or in addition to!) joining a Y4C Team. 

As a reminder, all Y4C events count as community service hours–email Megan ( to learn how to receive community service hours for your work with Y4C.

How To Join

Our meetings occur on the second Sunday of every month from 2-3pm. These meetings are perfect for new participants and people who have never taken action for climate before, so check it out and bring your friends! 

Find details for CSH Program calls and all other Y4C events on our Calendar.

Activities You Might Do

At the CSH Program Call, you will have the option to sign up for a variety of activities depending on your interests and areas you’d like to grow. Activities are organized into 4 categories:

  3. Policy and Campaigns
  4. Events and Program Support 

Here are some examples of activities you might take on:

  • Make a meme!
  • Get signatures for our petition
  • Text Eco Club Coalition members a reminder about the ECC meeting
