If you have court-ordered community service hours to complete, you may be able to find opportunities through SOLVE.
Please note: Individuals who have been convicted of or charged with any crime involving or relating to invoking fear in another person and any form of harassment or assault (including but not limited to stalking, assault, battery, domestic violence, child abuse, and neglect, child pornography, child abduction, online harassment, or any sexual offense) are NOT permitted to register on this site.
If you're unsure your offense is appropriate, email us before you create an account at firstname.lastname@example.org. We reserve the right to turn away anyone from using our site.
How to Get Started
1. Check out our Calendar
Check out our volunteer opportunity calendar to make sure there are enough projects that work for your schedule and location before creating an account. Projects are subject to cancellation (especially during poor weather conditions) so we recommend getting started early on fulfilling your requirements.
Step 2: Create an account
Create an account on our site by registering HERE.
Step 3: Notify Us
Notify us after you create an account, but before you sign up for a SOLVE volunteer project.
Email us at email@example.com to let us know that you have court-ordered community service hours to complete and include:
- Full name
- Number of hours you need to serve
- Deadline to complete hours
- Case number (if provided by the court)
Step 4: Find Volunteer Opportunities
Step 5: Sign Up & Volunteer
Please sign up for volunteer opportunities in advance, as self-reported or unscheduled hours will not be accepted. Contact the event leader by email before attending to request post-event volunteer hour confirmation. Simply mention your need for paperwork signing. Find their email icon near the registration button on the event page.
Step 6: Request a Verification Letter
Once you have completed all the hours you needed with SOLVE, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and our staff will then be able to write a verification of hours letter. This letter by default is emailed to you on our letterhead with our Tax ID number, your name, the number of hours you completed, and a signature from the department head on it. If your case number needs to be included, please include it in your email. We do not submit your letter to the court on your behalf.
Please Note: SOLVE is not able to verify any hours for projects that are not managed by us. If you have signed up to attend a SOLVE project, here is a community service log you can use as backup documentation to help verify and track your hours. Last-minute requests for court-ordered volunteer opportunities will not be given any higher priority.
If you cannot attend a project, please click "Remove Me" next to the project in your Upcoming Opportunities.
Email email@example.com at least 4-5 business days in advance to request a verification of hours letter.
