Community Service

Merced High School offers a Purple Cord Program for students who participate in community service activities. The Purple Cord is awarded at a luncheon during the student's graduation year to those seniors who have completed a minimum of 250 hours of volunteer service in the community. The hours can be completed over the course of the student's high school career. The student is responsible for:
  • Locating a volunteer site
  • Documenting their time
  • Submitting time sheets before the deadline
