Nonprofit organizations that are not identified with a graduation cap on the Montgomery County Volunteer Center (MCVC) website require pre-approval.
The MCPS Form 560-50, Individual Student Service Learning Request, must be submitted and approved by the school-based SSL Coordinator in advance of service. All pre-approval requests must be submitted in a timely manner. There is a two-week allowance for school-based SSL Coordinators to review the request for approval or denial based on compliance with MCPS SSL Program. During the summer break, requests can be scanned and emailed to SSL@mcpsmd.org.
Students do not use student_ID@mcpsmd.net as your contact information when registering. Use another email or phone number.

2020 Choose Respect PSA Contest Information
Thank you to all who recognized Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., with a service project promoting character education and empathy, an MCPS Be Well 365 essential, during the months of December and January! Sixty-seven schools reported more than 100 different service projects that benefited hospitals, homeless shelters, veterans service organizations, assisted living facilities, animal rescue organizations, food banks, donation centers, and many more locations serving communities in need. Students collected clothing, food, and supplies; assembled care packages; made blankets and animal toys; created inspirational cards and placemats; completed acts of kindness; and passed out travel bags to troops returning from deployment. In remarkable fashion, our students put empathy and kindness into powerful action, touching hearts, lifting spirits, educating minds, and impacting many in meaningful, creative, and admirable ways.
