The past few months have presented new challenges to nearly all areas of everyday life, and we're proud to see the perseverance and strength in our Frontier Family. The struggles we've faced through the COVID-19 pandemic highlights the importance of working together to support one another. This is one of the reasons we are thrilled to announce that Frontier School Division is sharing the Canada Student Service Grant (CSSG) program with our students, in the hopes they will participate!

This exciting program unites Canadian not-for-profit organizations in a collective mission, providing meaningful service opportunities to thousands of post-secondary students and recent graduates, creating impacts in communities across the country, and empowering young people to develop their own skills through service. 

Upon completion of the CSSG volunteer opportunity, student participants who meet the eligibility criteria can also apply to receive a grant between $1,000 and $5,000.  

If the CSSG is of interest to Frontier students, we encourage you to apply as soon as possible as there are many exciting opportunities to be taken advantage of!  

After you register, you will be invited to join volunteer training. Upon completion, student volunteers will begin service activities.  

We hope that you take advantage of this exciting opportunity to showcase your talents, and find strength and connection within your community during this unprecedented time.
