Community Involvement Hours - Secondary

Print [+] [-]

Community Service Program

The Community Service Program is a volunteer program where secondary students are provided opportunities in non-academic situations to develop social responsibilities and provide leadership within the community. Students are allowed to volunteer after school hours throughout the year in order to help raise money for various charities and to provide leadership with local institutions such as the YMCA. Each year Delia School of Canada provides thousands of hours to helping and benefiting Hong Kong.

As part of the diploma requirements, students must complete a minimum of 40 hours of community involvement activities. These activities may be completed at any time during their years in the secondary school program.

The community involvement requirement is designed to encourage students to develop awareness and understanding of civic responsibility and of the role they can play in supporting and strengthening their communities. The requirement will benefit communities, but its primary purpose is to contribute to students’ development. It will provide opportunities for students to learn about the contributions they can make to the community.
