Our program offers students many opportunities to give back to their local communities and communities around the world.

We are proud to partner with many different organizations so that Glenn Arbour keeps at the heart of its foundation: community minded citizenship.

Giving back is a way of thinking that is learned through modeled behaviour. We are fortunate to have such a community minded volunteer group in our Parent Teacher Association (GAAPTA). Students see their parents’ commitment to helping others and the effects are tangible. Thank you, GAAPTA!

Our students participate in different awareness and fundraising campaigns for Me to We, Soles for Souls, the Terry Fox Foundation, Movember Men’s Health Awareness, Jump Rope for Heart, the Salvation Army, and many more.

Each campaign allows students to learn about worthwhile causes, how they can help and what they can do to make a difference!
