Community Involvement @ St. Matthew
All high school students (Grades 9-12) in the province of Ontario are required to complete 40 hours of community service as a graduation requirement. This requirement helps young people develop new skills while encouraging them to develop an awareness and understanding of civic responsibility as they play a role in contributing and strengthening their communities. Students may begin to accumulate the required community involvement hours beginning in the summer after they complete Grade 8.
