Schools and student groups who make service a priority play an important role in motivating community involvement. Service clubs, honor societies, greek organizations, academic groups, and campus events are all invited to apply.

Each group member activates an InnerView account and contributes their service hours individually. A group's recognition is determined by the collective impact of its members.
