40 Hours of Community involvement

The community involvement requirement is designed to provide students with the opportunity to develop awareness and understanding about civic responsibility. They can actively participate in supporting and strengthening their communities. It also provides the opportunity for students to learn more about themselves and possible career opportunities.

Students can start accumulating hours in the summer before entering Grade 9.

Tips for students looking for volunteer opportunities:

  • Check your school board’s website for resources to help you record hours and find volunteer activities.
  • Visit the Ontario Volunteer Centre Network to find opportunities through a centre in your community.
  • Get involved in “Change The World”, open to students aged 14-18, during April and May of each year.
  • Make sure you know which activities qualify for the community involvement requirement. Students under eighteen years old can consult with their parents to plan and select their community involvement activities, according to ministry guidelines
