    Some of the Sr. Students at the dance studios that I teach at have gotten their volunteer hours by helping with the younger classes. If he's involved in any activities I'm sure they would have a way to log some hours.

    Default Community Hours

    My brother volunteered for Jesse's Journey. His girlfriend also volunteered to provide child care at Goodlife Fitness.

    Also I happen to know as a former employee that Canadian Blood Services takes Volunteers to hand out cookies and juice to blood donors both at their main office and at travelling clinics around the city. It doesn't take very long for the hours to add up if you like the volunteer work.

    The Cancer Clinic at the Victoria Campus of the London Health Science Centre also takes volunteers for greeting patients.

    The Canadian Cancer Society is also looking for canvassers for donations for their summer campaign. The United Way also takes student volunteers.

    In the spring/summer, the London Chamber of Commerce looks for volunteers for their annual Corporate Challenge event.

    If your child is particularly fond of a particular sport or activity, volunteer hours can be completed when assisting coach a soccer, lacrosse, hockey, baseball team.

    Also, it may have already been mentioned but the London Animal Care and Control and the London Humane Society look for volunteers to walk dogs and play with animals at their shelters.


    Hope these suggestions help.

    Thanks so much for all the great suggestions! Now if he was passing all his classes, we'd really have it all covered.

    If he still needs hours, is strong and able to take initiative, I'll need help at Spring Sale. The Friday night for helping people bring their stuff in and on Saturday to help direct parking.

    I saw on the Health unit website that there are three programs looking for volunteers http://www.healthunit.com/index.asp?...rticleID=12965

    Check the guidance office. Many of them have binders full of volunteer opportunities, and it is the first place an organization calls when trying to hook up with high school volunteers.

    The Ministry of Education stipulates that volunteer hours are not to be gained through doing something that could be construed as taking away someone's job. So, I am not sure why that pet store has a sign posted (assuming it is for volunteering in the store). Actually, they have absolutely no say as to whether someone volunteering there would be able to count the hours as community service. The decision is totally at the school principal's discretion. So, if you are unsure about something being valid, you better check it out there first.
