This is a six-week campaign promoting youth volunteerism among Ontario’s high school students. ChangeTheWorld is delivered through a partnership between the Government of Ontario and the Ontario Volunteer Centre Network (OVCN). Since 2008, more than 140,000 young people have volunteered over 643,000 hours through this campaign. ChangeTheWorld challenges high school students all across Ontario aged 14 to 18 to volunteer a minimum of three hours over six weeks. Participation in this campaign is open to all secondary school students across the province and contributes to the 40-community involvement hours required to obtain an Ontario high school diploma.

Volunteer Centres representing communities across Ontario will be providing guidance, resources, and hands-on assistance to school staff and their students in creating or participating in enjoyable and memorable volunteer experiences. As the guidance and career educators of your schools, you can be the ambassadors to help promote the ChangeTheWorld campaign by encouraging students to participate. Our youth are increasingly seeking opportunities to improve their local communities by giving their time, skills and talents as volunteers for causes they deem important. This campaign is the perfect tool that helps students find their passion and develop essential skills for their future careers. If your school is interested in participating in volunteer events during ChangeTheWorld, visit ctw.ovcn.ca for more information. We would be delighted if you could share this information with your school staff, faculty and student councils and/or groups, to make them aware of the many events taking place in their communities. In the meantime, please remember that Volunteer Centres across Ontario are here to help your students find volunteer opportunities year-round. To remove the burden from your plates, you can simply direct them to ctw.ovcn.ca; and there they can locate and contact the closest Volunteer Centre to them. Sincerely, Joanne Brown Carine Strong
