Bayview Glen is committed to service within our community both nationally and internationally. The Community Involvement programme encourages students to engage in responsible and challenging activities and to become more familiar with their community. Last year, students in the Upper School met the challenge by completing over 10,000 hours of Community Involvement.
The Ontario Ministry of Education requires each student to complete 40 hours of Community Involvement before receiving their Ontario Secondary School Diploma. To receive the Bayview Glen Diploma, students must complete a minimum of 15 hours each year from Grades 9 to 12. The Student Handbook outlines the ministry guidelines for Community Involvement. Before starting any Service activity, students should verify the opportunity qualifies for Community Involvement hours.
All students will also be required to hand in their Community Involvement Planner to Student Services. Throughout the year, volunteer opportunities are posted on the Community Involvement board on the third floor and on Blackboard under Student Services.
NEW for 2017/2018: A new online portal has been created with many volunteer resources that are now just a click away.
Students can play a role in changing and improving their community through helping others and by being involved. This is your chance to make a difference!
Please contact the Upper School Student Services Office if you have any questions.
