Volunteering in the Summer
Students are invited to find volunteer initiatives that may include remote volunteer opportunities during emergency measures, such as letter-writing campaigns to seniors. If a student participates, they should document their experience and submit to their home school guidance department in September for review and consideration towards the 40-hour community involvement requirement.

Students under 18 years old should consult with their parents to plan and select their community involvement activities. 

Learning at Home Resources for students and families
The ministry is working to adapt the Learn at Home website to outline the key learning that takes place in high-demand and pre-requisite secondary courses (e.g., Math, Science, English/FranΓ§ais, etc.). This key concept mapping will be accompanied with free, online resources to help students independently refresh theirβ€―learning in preparation for the 2020-21 school year.  

The COVID-19 outbreak has impacted the lives of students by displacing regular routines, and removing protective factors such as sports, clubs and other social activities. In response, the Learn at Home website will also include free well-being resources for students and families to access throughout the summer months.
