Student Charity Fundraising at Toronto Schools

From school clubs to sports teams and orientation camping trips, Toronto prep schools grant students not only a rich education, but also a plethora of extracurricular opportunities. If you're looking for a private school in the Toronto area, be sure check what type of extracurricular events and programs they offer to students — and don't forget to check out the school's charity and fundraising involvement.


One of the main reasons why parents enroll their children in a private school is because they want their child to receive a well-rounded education, meaning not only the best academic education but the best education in life lessons too. At the Toronto Prep School, student volunteerism in charity fundraising programs and events is greatly valued. Participating in charity work is an effective way for youth to learn crucial and beneficial life lessons, such as civil awareness, communication and networking — not to mention the importance of accountability.
Below are just some of the benefits that come with partaking in organizing charity programs and fundraising events.

Enhance Leadership Skills

Helping to put together a charity event takes a lot of preparation and organization. It also requires one to know when to take initiative and when to take on a more supportive role. Critical thinking and the ability to solve problems quickly are also important to a successfully organized  fundraiser. These are all invaluable skills that make for an ideal leader and will be continuously handy throughout your child's life.

Boost Confidence

The pay-it-forward motives of volunteerism also have a profoundly positive psychological effect. "Doing good” for the community makes you feel good, and that usually means reduced stress levels which results in mental clarity and well-balanced emotions.

Build Relationships

Giving back to your community puts you in touch with those in your community. Students work together to achieve a common goal, forging relationships with each other and building connections with sponsors. Your child's network and their networking skills are pivotal to their success once they leave the confines of school.  Working on a charity event is a great way to secure a network basis and develop their relationship building skills.

Social Awareness & Civil Duty

Social awareness and civil duty are probably the more obvious reasons why volunteerism is not just beneficial to the individual but also important for the betterment of your son or daughter's community. It informs your child of the state of their surroundings and of other, less fortunate life circumstances. Not only that, charity involvement teaches students that they can make a difference. It shows students that they have a voice that is of value and they play an active and defining role in their society.
For a truly all-encompassing education, it is important that you look at private high schools in Toronto that support volunteerism and encourage charity fundraising.  By doing so, you'll help your child enhance their leadership skills, boost their confidence, expand their network of relationships while teaching them the importance of social responsibility.
