Every student who begins secondary school during or after the 1999-2000 school year must complete a minimum of forty (40) hours of community involvement activities as a graduation requirement..
The purpose of the community involvement requirement is to encourage students to develop awareness and understanding of civic responsibility and of the role they can play and the contributions they can make in supporting and strengthening their communities. The community involvement requirement is also an opportunity to celebrate the many contributions that our young people make in their communities.
Students may begin accumulating hours during the summer before they enter Grade 9. It is recommended that students complete their 40 hours by the end of Grade 10, or before they start working part time. These activities must be completed outside scheduled class time; they must not be part of a credit course; they must be unpaid activities; they must total a minimum of forty hours; and they must be completed by the end of grade twelve.
