 Community Service Contract                            General Release Form

 

Court appointed community service hours offered will consist of trash pick up at a KLB approved site, and sometimes light office work. Our staff will be on-site to supervise and check on community service workers, but we DO NOT offer constant supervision. Those under the age of 18 will need a legal guardian’s permission and signature on CS documents in order to complete hours with KLB.

KLB will provide the necessary supplies to conduct trash pick up (trash bags, litter grabbers, gloves, safety vests, etc). Workers may sign up for shifts of up to 8 hours of community service for each session offered. Unless otherwise stated, all community service hours are trash pick up and outside work- so please dress accordingly.
