Community Service Volunteer Opportunities


                                      Community Involvement Form


In recognition of the challenges faced by students attempting to complete their required Community Involvement Hours, the Ministry of Education has expanded the types of activities which can be deemed acceptable.  Students may now accumulate hours in the following ways:

>  Providing tutoring and mentorship supports through virtual tutoring, teaching online dance/music/etc., assisting siblings and/or younger students with online learning and schoolwork;

>  Connecting with and supporting seniors by conversing with seniors virtually, acting as technology mentors for seniors who wish to learn more about social media and online communications, delivering groceries to elderly or immunocompromised neighbours, checking and virtually visiting with isolated seniors, etc. (You can support your grandparents this way!)

>  Support for families, neighbourhoods, and community initiatives by walking younger siblings or neighbourhood children to and from school, assisting with donation pick8ups and drop-offs for not-for-profit organizations, sewing masks to donate, shoveling walks or performing Spring yard clean-up for family and neighbours due to extenuating circumstances, etc. 

>  Utilizing social media to connect with your community by looking up local volunteer opportunities online, organizing virtual reading or math activities for feeder schools, performing musical entertainment over social media for seniors, encouraging people to donate to food banks and other not-for-profits online, etc.

Students may also count up to 10 hours of paid work towards their community service hours if they consult with the school's administration and complete a reflection which describes how their work contributes to the service of others.

This year's potential graduates are reminded that they must have 20 hours of community service completed by the beginning of June.

For a list of opportunities please listen to morning announcements, check out the posters on the bulletin boards, our social media accounts, or go to Student Services. 

Community Involvement Forms are available on our website or in Student Services!

Expansion of Acceptable Community Involvement Volunteer Criteria 

Almonte General Hospital Junior Volunteer Program

Are you looking to gain experience in the healthcare field and to complete community service hours this summer?  The Junior Volunteer Program at the Almonte General Hospital and Fairview Manor is currently recruiting students who will be graduating grade 8 or who are in high school.

The program provides an incredible opportunity for students to work with a number of health care professionals.  The program allows high school students to gain work experience and accumulate their community service hours by assisting staff in many areas.  The residents, clients, and patients of the hospital and manor benefit from their interactions with the younger generation, and vice versa.  Junior volunteers are students in and around the Almonte area who have graduated from grade 8 or who are currently in high school.

The Junior Volunteer Program runs at the Almonte General Hospital and Fairview Manor from dates to be determined.  The volunteers will have opportunities in areas such as Physiotherapy, Day Hospital, the Medical/Surgical Unit, the Obstetrics Unit, Rosamond wing, Fairview Manor Recreation, Administration, Hairdressing, and Volunteer Services.  They will work one week, Monday to Friday, 9:00 am to 3:00 pm, with four different positions available weekly to choose from.  General training is provided to all of the volunteers as well as specific training for individual roles.  The Student Volunteer Leader for the Junior Volunteer Program is Jillian Larkin.

Junior Volunteers will gain valuable skills, knowledge and experiences that are transferable to future endeavours.  They will leave with an appreciation for those in the health care system and a sense of accomplishment.  On completion of the program, students will receive a certificate, a letter of reference, and verification that they have completed hours of community service.
