Every student who begins secondary school must complete a minimum of 40 hours of community involvement activities as one of the requirements for an Ontario Secondary School Diploma (OSSD). Students will enter their completed hours directly into their MyWay account.  It is strongly recommended that students complete Community Involvement hours early in their secondary school career.


Students will track their community involvement hours by inputting the completed hours, location, supervisor name and contact information into MyWay.
