Community Service

Community Service

Since September 1999, all students in Ontario have been required to complete a minimum of 40 hours of community involvement as part of the secondary school diploma requirements. Effective July 1, 2011, students will be able to start accumulating community involvement hours in the summer before they enter grade 9.(Guidelines for Community Involvement).

Students are encouraged to complete their 40 hours early in their high school career. For those looking for ideas, the SC Guidance department maintains a list of volunteer opportunities and students can also view the postings on the community service board located outside of the guidance office.

Before starting your volunteer activity please download the Community Involvement Notification and Activity Completion Sheet and obtain the approval from the school Principal/designate. Community Involvement Forms are also available in the guidance office.  Completed forms must be signed and submitted to the guidance office to ensure your community involvement hours are recorded.
