Does your educational institution require volunteer hours?: All #WashSmarter representatives can authorize Certifications of Volunteer Hours for volunteers enrolled in The #ChangeMakers Initiative while petitioning. Every 15 signatures collected and validated by MP Laurel Collins's staff may count as one hour of volunteering time. Some institutions may not accept volunteer hours from #WashSmarter. Check with your institution's volunteering requirements before petitioning solely for volunteer hours.
