While we encourage and support community services by all students, Middle school students are required to perform community service hours. At Malik Academy, we value helping others and make it a vital portion of our school community aims. Prophet Mohamed (PBUH) said, “Allah will aid a servant (of His) so long as the servant aids his brother.” While our students engage in opportunities to serve the community, they also learn the social and interpersonal skills to build strong spiritual community leaders.
Sixth grade students are required 8 hours of community service. Seventh graders are required 10 hours of community service. Eighth graders are required 12 hours of community service. Community Service represents 30% of the student’s third term Religion grade. For this reason it is very important for all service hours to be signed and submitted before the end of the year.
Malik Academy encourages its students to participate in the local community by engaging in the many offered programs such as volunteering at the local Muslim homeless shelter, participating with the ISBCC clean-up day, recycling bottles (200 Cans or bottles/one hour), and so on.
