1.What are the requirements for my students to participate in ChangeTheWorld?
Requirements are:

Students must be 14 to 18 years of age to be eligible to participate
Whatever event or activity is planned, it must give back to the community to benefit
a non-profit/charity of their choice (i.e. awareness campaign, fundraiser, etc.)
The event/activity must be held during the timeframe of ChangeTheWorld,
which is April 10th to June 3rd 2017.

2.Why should our school/students get involved in ChangeTheWorld?

ChangeTheWorld provides the opportunity for your students to be part of something big! Individually, one can make a positive difference within an arm’s reach, but by participating in this collective action across the province, students are joining a movement that aims to inspire a generation to engage in lifelong volunteerism!
All volunteer hours during the campaign count towards your students’ 40 hours of community involvement, which is required for graduation. By participating in ChangeTheWorld, students take part in meaningful volunteer opportunities that speak to them and which can help them to develop their skills.

3.What is the Volunteer Centre’s role in ChangeTheWorld?

We know how busy school staff are and that’s why Sarnia Gives is here to help! TheChangeTheWorld coordinator will be your main contact to help guide you through the planning process, and to answer any questions you may have. This campaign provides the opportunity for your students to take their passions and interests and put them into action. We have everything you need, and offer all the support necessary to make this happen.

4.What is Sarnia Gives role in ChangeTheWorld?

We want to recognize your students in this provincial effort! By registering your event during the ChangeTheWorldtimeframe, every student that volunteers will receive a ChangeTheWorld certificate. This certificate acknowledges the time and effort they have given to make a difference in their community! If your event is not already connected to the cause of a non-profit organization, we can help facilitate that connection. Plus, ChangeTheWorld events get additional promotion through our vast networks, raising the profile of your school and your event, as well as increasing your reach and impact.

5.Would someone be able to come in and speak to our students aboutChangeTheWorld and how to get involved?

Yes! Contact Cassie Schooley at info@sarniagives.com for more information and availability.

6.Is there something I have to report on once the campaign has wrapped up?

As part of ensuring your students hours contribute to our total results for the province, we ask that you submit the number of hours and youth that have participated in your event(s) during the ChangeTheWorld time frame, Sarnia Gives.
