New Grade 9 students in September 2021 are able to work towards their 40 community hours this summer and bring in their forms or letters in September. Please remember to volunteer with a non-profit organization!
Students who complete more than 25 community service hours with one organization should ask for a reference letter. This will help you to build portfolios in careers class or when looking for employment in the future. The letter should be on letterhead from the organization, and include the following:
- The number of hours
- The dates or time span the hours were earned within
- If possible, a description of the tasks or duties completed
- If possible, a description of the skills learned with this position
- If possible, any commendations of outstanding works
- Contact information
If you have any questions or the organization is unable to write a letter, then please get in touch.
You can look for community hour opportunities, including virtual opportunities at volunteertoronto.ca
Due to community restrictions related to COVID. 2020 - 2021 Graduates are required to have only 20 hours of community service.
