Examples of Service
These credits are largely gained whilst working as a group/class and the activity is led by a teacher/catechist/youth worker. For pin level, there are no requirements to participate in acts of service outside of the home base. Should you wish to take part in service away from your home base, this would be encouraged. However, you must make sure that your School/Parish Safeguarding procedures are adhered to and children are supervised by an adult.
Active participation in Reflection Points can also be counted as credits of service at Pin level up to 6 credits.
