What is the NISD Green Cord Community Service Award Program?

The Green Cord Community Service Award Program is an initiative designed to help high school students gain a sense of community service, pride, and ownership. The program is a way to encourage 9-12 grade students to contribute at least 100 hours of approved community service per school year. Those students meeting the requirements will be recognized as Green Cord award recipients in each high school they complete 100 or more hours.

  • Students can be recognized all four years.
  • Students meeting and/or exceeding requirements for community service (100 hours/year) will be awarded a certificate and the option to purchase a Green Cord for each year of participation. Students can Letter in Green Cord volunteering.
  • Students who receive the Green Cord award all four years will be recognized at the NISD Board of Trustees Awards ceremony each May.
  • During senior year, graduates will have the option to purchase a "Green Cord" for each year of achievement (100 hours/year) to wear during the high school graduation ceremony.

2022-2023 Green Cord Overview

How to participate and submit your green cord hours?

We are excited to announce we will be using an online tracking and reporting system for all Green Cord community service hours called x2VOL. This system will allow us to eliminate using Google forms and centralize the information. x2VOL will allow your student to enter their Green Cord hours online at any time, as well as check for any volunteer opportunities (if the campus is notified of opportunities), check hours submitted 24/7, receive reminders about opportunities, and print a service hour log that can be used for college applications.
