Volunteering is a rewarding way to give back to others and to get connected to your community. Volunteering is encouraged for students in grade 8-12 as a means of building their capacities as citizens, collaborating with others on a kind and common goal, and gaining experience for your resumé and post-secondary/scholarship applications. Volunteering is NOT a graduation requirement.
SD36 partners with Community Schools to offer secondary students a variety of volunteer opportunities. The Career Centre has a wide variety of external (non-partnering) volunteer leads. To access these opportunities, students must attend one of the following volunteer orientation workshops after school in the Library:
- September 28th in the Library from 3 - 4:30 p.m.
- February 27th in the Library from 3 - 4:30 p.m.
- June 4th in the Library 3 - 4:30 p.m.
Students who attend orientation will also be given access to a digital hours tracking sheet. Students who engage in their own external volunteer opportunities are still advised track their hours and retain them for up to five years.
Your volunteering contact person is Mrs. De Conti.
