Everything except LibriVox (yes, this is where knitting gets discussed. Now includes non-LV Volunteers Wanted projects)

I'm a high school student, and also an aspiring voice actor and actor. Lately I've been hearing a lot about university, and how I need to collect volunteer hours. Could the hours I spend on prepping, recording and editing for Librivox count as volunteer hours/community service?

Probably not.

We have no way to verify how much time you spend on editing, prepping, etc., so the only proof you have of time worked is the run times of the sections you record.

Also, we have no one to sign any paperwork.
