VOLUNTEER

Volunteer work has become a key requirement of the secondary school education process from coast to coast. It’s a trend worth a closer look, a few tweaks and some celebration.

In 1999, Ontario broke new ground in Canada with a requirement that every high school student complete 40 hours of community service outside the classroom before graduating. The move was sold as a way to improve civic engagement and enhance students’ personal development, and it instantly created a huge source of free labour for a variety of charitable and community organizations.
