As part of the requirement to graduate with an Ontario Secondary School Diploma, all high school students must participate in COVID safe volunteering to collect 40 hours of volunteer experience prior to their graduation. AcadeCap has made volunteering easy this year with some volunteer roles that can be done by students before school and during breaks. For example, one of our science-loving students has taken on the role of Assistant Animal Crew Supervisor. One of his jobs will be to maintain the school’s fresh and saltwater aquariums. He will receive some training, learn about aquarium care and maintenance, assist in daily, weekly, and monthly maintenance tasks, and create an instruction manual for other crew members. Later in the year, he will have opportunities to share his knowledge and expertise through a COVID safe science presentation to other students.
