* NOTE *
* A business whose goal is to make money for the owner(s), is NOT a non-profit organization. Even if you're not being paid and the business is not "showing a profit", those hours WILL NOT COUNT!
* You must make sure you're working for a non-profit (charitable) organization.
* Working for a neighbor, relative or other individual is NOT ACCEPTABLE. While we appreciate the sentiment of those acts, your hours must be completed through an organization.
* If you have a question about a specific organization, ask if they have a 501 C3 or call the Youth Court office.
