Community Involvement Hours @HWDSB

As a part of the requirement for graduation, all students must complete a minimum of 40 hours of community involvement during secondary school in order to obtain an Ontario Secondary School Diploma (OSSD). This diploma requirement is designed to:

  • encourage civic responsibility,
  • promote community values,
  • support students’ career explorations,
  • develop student interests and skills, and
  • reinforce the importance of volunteering


HWDSB has partnered with Kambeo (formerly Gigit Marketplace) to bring volunteer opportunities from the Hamilton community online. Students, remember to have a discussion with your parent(s)/guardian(s) about using Kambeo, which is optional.
