Leadership in the Community
Pickering College’s structured community service program teaches students they have a responsibility and ability to help others. We aim to foster a love of service in each student. By graduation, students will have the skills needed to continue volunteering in their life ahead, as well as an awareness and sensitivity to local, national and international issues.
Our Service Mission
Our mission is to educate all members of the Pickering College community on the importance of service. We provide ongoing support for fun and rewarding community service opportunities. All students are encouraged to practice values-based decision making and social responsibility through service. Each student is actively supported by our faculty in developing his or her individual servant leadership skills.
Leaving a Lasting Impression
With the help of the Director of Leadership and Community Service, students complete at least 60 hours of community service while at Pickering College. Last year, ninety per cent of our graduating students exceeded the PC community service hours requirement. Students are also taught the value of building servant leadership and charitable actions into their way of life, such that it rewards both others and themselves.
