In order to graduate, students must complete a minimum of 40 hours of community involvement as a requirement of the Ontario Secondary School Diploma. These 40 hours may be completed at any time during the student’s high school years and may take place in a variety of settings, including not-for-profit organizations, businesses, public sector institutions, and informal settings. Students, in collaboration with their parents, will decide how they will complete the community involvement requirement. Students may complete any number of eligible activities as outlined on the Hastings and Prince Edward District School Board Community Involvement webpage.

Students can begin to complete their community hours as soon as they've graduated from grade 8. 

Use this form to record your activities and hours. Return it to the school when it is full or when at least 40 hours have been recorded.
