Members meet quarterly and elect their own President, Vice-President, and Secretary. Every quarter students must individually volunteer for at least 1 service activity, record the service on a verification sheet, and hand it in by the end of the 9 weeks. Students must complete a minimum total of 15 hours of service each year, with 10 hours due by the end of the 3rd quarter. Students must volunteer for at least 1 service activity at Wauconda Middle School, and will need to locate areas in the community they can independently complete their requirement. Students must continue to display outstanding scholarship, character, leadership, service, and citizenship.
