Community Involvement Hours

Due to the difficulty of completing community involvement hours during the pandemic, the Ontario Ministry of Education has reduced the graduation requirement to a minimum of 20 hours for June 2021.

All students in Ontario are required to complete a minimum of 40 hours of community involvement as part of the secondary school diploma requirements. This year, due to the pandemic, the graduation requirement has been reduced to 20 hours. The OCDSB's Community Involvement Hours website offers insight into the purpose behind this requirement, as well as suggestions for completing this requirement during these challenging times.

Students may use the Google form on the OCDSB website to submit their volunteer hours. A report will be sent to South Carleton so our records are complete.

Guidelines for Community Involvement

Students are encouraged to complete their volunteer 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.
