The 40 hours of Community Service Hours are meant to be just that, "SERVICE". The intent of this Ministry Initiative is to create strong citizens. Students are to volunteer for NON-PROFIT AGENCIES or for events that are for NON-PROFIT or a FUNDRAISING endeavour.
JUST BECAUSE A STUDENT DOES SOMETHING FOR FREE, DOES NOT MEAN THAT IT QUALIFIES AS "SERVICE". FREE "LABOUR" FOR BUSINESSES OR PROFIT EVENTS DOES NOT COUNT!
Students should go online by clicking this link www.youthengaged.ca or the graphic above to view opportunities that qualify. Please check with Guidance if you plan to do hours other than those approved by the Volunteer Centre of Guelph-Wellington.
