One of the major criteria for selection of candidates is their involvement in community services and activities. By participating in Community Services, students are introduced to good morals and values like humbleness, gratefulness, honesty and respect.
Every QJSP candidate must complete 40 hrs of Community Service in a year (which includes 20 hrs of services for one’s community and the rest 20 hrs for the general society) in order to be eligible for renewal of financial aid. As per the QJSP contract, Community Services include activities such as spending time at orphanages – Teach, donate clothes,books etc., spending time at old age homes, participating in food drives etc. You can also take up a project of your choice such as tree planting, road safety etc. upon receiving approval from the Community Service Coordinators.
The hours spent in community service will help the students realize their educational, social and developmental goals as well as help their application for scholarship and financial aid in the coming years. QJSP Students are required to fill this form on a quarterly basis to report their activities.
