Seven Summits Centre for Learning would not be in existence without the numerous hours devoted to sharing time, knowledge and expertise with our staff and students. In return for this gift from our Community we ask that students give back.

  • Grade 8/9 students are encouraged to volunteer their time
  • Grade 10 – minimum of 20 hours
  • Grade 11 – minimum of 25 hours
  • Grade 12 – minimum of 30 hours

Students can choose what form this volunteer component takes, based on their interests, passions and expertise. Staff will help by making students aware of opportunities that come up. Parents are expected to support their child in completing these hours.

Seven Summits Centre for Learning is a charitable organization under the Visions for Small Schools Society. As such we rely heavily on community volunteers, board members and parents. Volunteers are essential so that we can keep the facility fee as low as possible and also allows us to offer diversity in our programming. $250 of the $2450 facility fee will be reimbursed by June 30th (end of the academic year for which it has been paid) if a parent(s) fulfills the minimum requirement of 15 hours of volunteering. Volunteer opportunities vary and include: driving students, running a workshop (i.e. foods), organizing an event (i.e. our annual dance fundraiser), tutoring a learner, building maintenance, IT support, sitting on a committee etc. We are happy to have you engage in other activities that are not on the list – let us know your thoughts on how you can help the Centre. If your schedule is such that it is impossible to volunteer time then the $250 volunteer component of the facility fee will not be reimbursed.
