You are helping to make your community a better place by contributing your time and efforts. It’s time that you receive the recognition that you deserve. Receive a Volunteers Plus certificate for the total number of volunteer hours you complete each year.
 
Levels of Service
Work towards one of three levels of certificate each year:
  • Bronze recognizes 30-40 hours of volunteer work
  • Silver recognizes 41-75 hours of volunteer work
  • Gold recognizes 76+ hours of volunteer work
Volunteer hours are only tracked each year from September 1 – August 31.
  
Tracking Hours
To track your volunteer hours, update your Experience Plus transcript. At the end of each academic year in August, our Experience Plus staff will review your volunteer work, and award your certificate accordingly. If you wish to receiver your Volunteers Plus certificate earlier, please inform our Experience Plus Assistant.
 
A Couple of Notes 
Volunteer work that is part of a course requirement can be tracked on your Experience Plus transcript, but cannot be used towards a Volunteers Plus certificate.
 
Volunteer work that is tracked towards an International Plus certificate cannot also be used towards a Volunteers Plus certificate, and vice versa.
