Volunteer Experience Program

The Summer Institute is a summer learning program unlike any other, set in its own community atmosphere. Children entering Senior Kindergarten to Grade 8 enjoy a variety of academic, recreational and athletic hands-on programs and activities giving them reasons to hope, dream, and aspire to any goal based on a foundation of academic success.

Summer Institute Volunteers serve as an important role in our program. Each volunteer will work in a program under the direction of the counsellor and program leader.
