Each Child, Our Future, Ohio’s strategic plan for education, calls for high school seniors to be able to demonstrate knowledge and skills
that will bring them success in their post-high school plans.

Ohio offers these students the chance to show evidence of their college and career readiness through senior work or community service
experiences that connect their academic and technical learning with real-world learning opportunities.
Ohio has approved senior work and community service experiences as part of the graduation requirements for the class of 2020. You
must be able to document you spent 120 hours engaged in an experience that can include activities such as paid or unpaid internships,
work studies, co-ops and apprenticeships.

A well-designed senior work or community service experience can help give you the professional, leadership, reasoning, and social
and emotional skills you need to succeed in today’s workforce. It also gives you access to a profession, industry or public sector that
interests you, helps you learn more about potential career paths and prompts you to think more about your plans after high school.
