Community Service

  • Giving Back the Orting Way!

    OHS seniors must earn a minimum of 25 community service hours to graduate. You will find community service opportunities and how to record your volunteer hours below.

    • 2020 seniors must earn 25 hours (exceptions can be made through Mr. Fries)
    • 2021 seniors can earn up to 30 hours, but no less than 25 during their high school career
    • 2022 seniors and beyond can earn up to 40 hours, but no less than 25 during their high school career

    Many of our OHS clubs provide opportunities to earn community service!

    To log your community service hours, visit GoTranseo (see video below), login with your OHS gmail account, and register by searching for Orting High School. After you register, choose Janette Bergen as your "teacher."

    If you have questions about what qualifies as community service, see Mrs. Bergen before or after school!

    Job Opportunities

    JobFest is Washington State’s largest young adult hiring fair.  Each year, hundreds of youth and young adults are given the opportunity to attend. They bring their resumes, dress business professional, and meet one on one with employers who are actively seeking full-time, part-time, or seasonal positions.

    Many of the open positions with these employers are entry-level, which means they require little to no experience. This is a fantastic networking opportunity and will give young adults the chance to practice their interview skills and receive feedback. In years past, many participants have been extended job offers on the spot.

    Event Details:

    Location: Tacoma Dome; 2727 E. D. St. Tacoma, WA. 98421
    Transportation: Each participant is responsible for arranging their own transportation; free parking is included.
