Click on the links below to find various opportunities to volunteer within the Red Deer community, reasons to begin volunteering at an early age, and a form that can be used to keep track of your volunteer hours. Many scholarships that you will apply for in your grade 12 year will require a listing of the number of hours you have spent volunteering and giving back to your community so keep track! Volunteering is very beneficial and important to consider when beginning your grade nine year at Thurber. We host a Volunteer Forum each fall, inviting over 38 community agencies and organizations to our school for a day to set up displays and educate students about what they offer to the citizens of Red Deer, and ways in which students can become involved to make a difference in the lives of others.
