In order to graduate with an Ontario Secondary School Diploma, each student must complete a minimum of 40 hours of community involvement activities, also known as “volunteer hours”.
The purpose of the community involvement requirement is to encourage students to develop awareness and understanding of civic responsibility and of the role they can play and the contributions they can make in supporting and strengthening their communities.
Dryden High School has prepared this list of approved organizations that students can earn volunteer hours with. Students need to complete a Student Tracking Form and submit it to the guidance office in order to have their volunteer hours added to their total.
There is never a better time than now to begin working towards your volunteer hour requirement! Contact the DHS Guidance office if you need help finding the volunteer activity that is right for you.
