Berkeley High School Community,

In celebration of the efforts of Cesar Chavez & other great examples of
community leaders, we will celebrate March as a Month of Service. 

This month is dedicated to improving our school as well as raising our
awareness of issues affecting our friends in our community & the world. We
will host after-school service events and a Service Fair to allow an
opportunity for students to become active participants in their community.
Below is a calendar of events. Please visit the leadership office and find
the sign-up sheets in the green volunteer folder. 


Service Fair on Campus Green

Student Clubs and community organizations welcome teachers and students to
learn about great causes. Find out how to get involved with an issue you
really care about.

overlook and maybe make some new friends.

collected items for the local homeless teenage youth shelter Y.E.A.H. This
