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.

Guidelines for Community Involvement

Students are encouraged to complete their 40 hours early in their high school career. Students are even able to start accumulating community involvement hours in the summer before they enter grade 9. For those looking for ideas, the SC Guidance department maintains a list of volunteer opportunities; 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 Hours Log 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.
