Volunteer Information

All high school students are required to complete 40 hours of community service as a graduation requirement. Students may begin to accumulate the required community involvement hours beginning in the summer after they complete Grade 8.  It is recommended that students do some community involvement hours every year in high school and submit forms to student services at least once a year.

Volunteer List of Ideas

Community Involvement hours must fall into one of these categories

  • Not-for-profit: includes voluntary activities for any not-for-profit institution or foundation that would not displace a paid worker. 
  • For-profit: includes voluntary activities that are charitable-based for any business or organization that would not displace a paid worker. If volunteers are enhancing a product/service being sold/provided by a for-profit business designed to make it more attractive and/or a better experience for clients, then it is not in keeping with the spirit of community service and would not be an approved activity.
  • Other: community support that you feel warrants consideration.  In this case, please submit a brief written summary that explains how this experience meets the spirit and expectations of community involvement as identified above.

Please note: If students are considering any of the activities that would fall into the second or third category above, approval by the principal or a designate at your high school is required.

Volunteer hours must be completed outside of class time, including community involvement activities completed at school.
