Beaconsfield High School’s volunteer program has finally resurfaced after COVID and will continue until May 2024.

Students are encouraged to connect with their community and give back. There are volunteer opportunities posted outside the community office (C103).

The  form that students need to fill out and have signed by the event’s supervisor are also on this board  or you can download the form here.

All of your hours that you give during or after school for groups like Bison News, Open House, EDDI, Student Life, SGA, Green Team, setting up for events, etc … count towards your hours required during the 2023-2024 school year. Even the hours you already put in during the month of September, such as the Terry Fox, run count as well.

Grade 7 and 8 will are encouraged to volunteer 20 hours during the 2023-2024 school year and grade 9,10 and 11 students for 30 hours.

Forms can be submitted to Ms. Pat in room C103 and she will track the students’ hours.
