Volunteer

WE NEED YOU!!!!!!!

The Library is a busy place and to make it run well and to keep it a student-centred library we need volunteers.

There are three ways to volunteer so check them out.download

Service Hours

Along with providing you with valuable skills, volunteer hours look great on resumes, university applications, and scholarship applications.

MRSS provides Service Pins for volunteer work.  The hours are accumulated in each of the student’s five years at Ridge.

Student Aide

If you are a grade 11 or 12 student and want to get some valuable volunteer experience, consider working as a student aide in the library.  Student Aides volunteer their time during regular classes.  So a block 2/B student aide will be expected to work in the library every block B.  Mr. Elphick takes attendance each block and expects the student aides to take on more responsibilities and learn more skills than other volunteers.  Being a student aide is both fun and challenging.

Work Experience

Students who have already spent a year as student aide can get Work Experience credits if they spend a second year volunteering during class time.  Second year volunteers are expected to be mature, hard working and willing to take on a leadership role.

GTP 30 Hour Requirement

If you need to meet the 30 requirement for Grad Transition Plan, consider volunteering in the library.  Not only will you meet the requirement, but you will gain valuable skill and help your school out.
