Community Involvement Program

teensAs stated in Ontario Secondary Schools, Grades 9 to 12: Program and Diploma Requirements, every student must complete a minimum of 40 hours of community involvement activities as part of the requirements for an Ontario Secondary School Diploma (OSSD).

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.

To assist students, parents and sponsors with this requirement, the Upper Canada District School Board has created a Mandatory Community Involvement Booklet that can be downloaded at the link below.
