Community Service (CSIP)

CSIP Overview

Community Service and Involvement Program (C.S.I.P.)

Community service is a non-paying job performed by one person or a group of people for the benefit of their community or its institutions. When our students perform community service it can be within our schools or for an outside "not-for-profit" organization whereby the volunteer does not receive a stipend in exchange for service.  

Students need to complete 15 hours/service in grades 9, 10, and 11 and 20 hours/service in grade 12.

NOT-FOR-PROFIT – is a type of business created to perform a charitable function. The goal of the business is to spend all of its proceeds/service on its mission and therefore, not to make a profit.  

Volunteer work at businesses or private residences will not be accepted
Involvement is the students taking advantage of all the wonderful extra curricular activities the members of our community has provided for them. This can be recognized in many different programs such as drama, athletics, music, clubs etc.

See the CSIP Point Information Sheet and Validation Form for more details about CSIP requirements.
Please email Edward Boll (CSIP Coordinator) at [email protected] or your Physical Education Teacher with any questions or assistance you may need confirming the validity of a not-for-profit organization. 

Can I Start to complete service in the summer? 
YES!! Community service and involvement start July 1st. Due to the fact that school is not in session, if you are planning to begin service please contact Mr. Boll prior to starting to confirm that your service will be accepted.
