The High School community service requirements are overseen by the Office of Campus Ministry. Students are required to serve 25 hours of service per year, for a cumulative total of 100 hours.

Recognizing that each student is uniquely gifted, we provide and foster opportunities for all members of the AHN community to share their time, talent and treasure within the larger Tampa community, and indeed, in the world.
