2020 - 2021

Given the current challenges related to COVID-19, the Ministry is providing increased flexibility in how all secondary students can earn hours in 2020-21:

  • Students can now earn hours for helping out during the school day (but not missing school) and for duties normally performed in the home (e.g., walking a younger child to and from school, helping younger siblings with school work).
  • Students aged 14 years and older can 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 (Reflection Exercise: Work Reflection Exercise.pdf ) indicating how their work contributed to the service of others.

 

For 2021 Graduates

For the 2020-21 school year, the Ministry of Education has revised the 40-hour community involvement graduation requirement so that students will not be adversely impacted by the ongoing challenges related to COVID-19.

For students graduating in the 2020-21 school year, the community involvement graduation requirement will be reduced to a minimum of 20 hours of community involvement activities. This adjustment acknowledges that many students who are eligible to graduate in the 2020-2021 school year face barriers in their attempt to complete the mandated 40 hours due to COVID-19 related restrictions.

If you are looking for ways to get involved in your community, while still adhering to social distancing guidelines, consider the following:

  • Check out Volunteer MBC to see what organizations are looking for help in the Mississauga, Brampton, and Caledon areas
  • Lawn maintenance/snow removal for seniors or others who cannot complete the work
  • Writing letters to seniors in Long Term Care Homes (check out Pocock Wellness for more info)
  • Knitting, sewing, or creating ear guards, masks, or other helpful Personal Protective Equipment
  • Acting as a mentor or participating in virtual volunteer opportunities where possible - For example: summer camps, faith-based activities, sports/arts, and community movements
  • Reach out to local hospitals, organizations to connect one-on-one with ways you may be able to support
