As part of the Ontario Secondary School Diploma, all students must complete 40 hours of community service over their 4 years of high school. This can begin in the summer before students begin grade 9. Community service is an opportunity to give back to others in need or support an organization that requires assistance without getting paid to do so.

Grade 12 students must submit their community service hours by May 30th of their graduating year to guidance.
