"Beyond These Walls" Opportunities for SWC students (as of March 4th)...

by Irene Siemiaszko | Sep 15, 2020

Please find below opportunities available to you which take place "beyond the walls of SWC". 

REMEMBER: for this school year only, the Ministry of Education has made multiple exceptions to make it easier for students to earn those 40 hours. Details were posted months ago in your D2L announcements. We know that there are fewer opportunities in the community at the moment BUT re-read that announcement and you might find that you are able to find hours within your home and job...this year only...do it now! 

Some of these activities qualify for Community Involvement Hours; others are just great experiences for your consideration.

Additional information regarding adjustments to the Community Involvement Hours requirement for 2020-2021, and the registration process for new Bulldogs, has been posted in your Guidance by-grade D2L classroom.

"Smiles for Seniors is an organization that has been created by two SWC students. It strives to diminish the loneliness that seniors in retirement / long term care homes experience, through a pen pal program that unites them with youth. Volunteer hours are offered to each youth participant for each letter they write. Becoming a pen pal writer is a small commitment, but it has a very LARGE impact!"
