Volunteer Opportunities


The BC Ministry of Education requires that all students achieve a total of 30 hours of work experience in order to graduate. These hours can be through a paid job, a volunteer Work Experience placement or through volunteer hours. These hours must be accomplished and registered at school before a student is able to enroll in the Work Experience 12A or B courses. These courses recognize a students part time job, outside of school, and accrue 4 Grade 12 credits each.

There are many volunteer opportunities in Sooke. Many organizations seek assistance from students for events throughout the community. (Remembrance Day, Santa Claus Parade, Amber Academy, Lions and Rotary projects, Transition Sooke, etc. etc.)  Sign up sheets are posted in the Career Center throughout the year. Students are encouraged to visit often to make connections to these events.

Volunteering is a low pressure way to learn team member skills, improve communication with adults and the public, explore a variety of possible future career paths and be rewarded with a sense of belonging and contribution.
