Ashbury College provides an intensive Community Service program. Not only do students meet the 40 hour requirement of the Ontario Secondary School Diploma, but we have an in-house awards program of Bronze (60-119 hours), Silver (120-199 hours), Gold (200-399 hours) and Platinum (400+ hours).
Students are engaged in a variety of activities with the local, national and global communities. As students become aware, involved and committed they learn how to take on leadership roles and become responsible, compassionate citizens. The rewards are largely intrinsic, but they are life-long. From these activities, students learn how to live meaningful lives in an ever-changing world. They learn to make a difference.
