Community Involvement Graduation Requirement

One of the graduation requirements in the province of Ontario is that students complete 40 hours of community involvement, or volunteer hours. Complete details regarding community service hours and the requisite forms are available on the OCDSB website. 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.
