Every secondary school student is required to complete Community Involvement (40 hours over 4 years) as a requirement for completion of their high school diploma. This is a provincial requirement to encourage students to develop awareness and understanding of civic responsibility, to increase awareness of the role they play and the contribution they can make in supporting and strengthening their communities, and to develop a positive image and a greater sense of identity within their community.
The 40-hour requirement is to be completed outside students’ normal instructional hours. Community involvement activities are to take place during lunch hours, after school, on weekends or during school holidays.
A signed Community Involvement form to verify hours must be completed. Want to volunteer but you’re not sure where to start?
