Volunteer Hours

Community Involvement (Volunteer Hours) Graduation Requirements 2020-21

Graduation requirements for volunteer hours have changed this year due to the pandemic. Graduating students only require 20 volunteer hours this year, and there are virtual volunteer opportunities for students to do from home.

  • Schools may allow students to earn hours during the time allotted for the instructional program on a school day;
  • Schools may allow students to earn hours through duties normally performed in the home; and
  • Schools may allow students aged 14 years and older to count up to a maximum of 10 hours from paid employment towards their earned hours. Students counting paid employment towards their graduation requirement will be required to complete a reflection exercise indicating how their work contributed to the service for others.
