WELCOME TO THE GIGIT STUDENT VOLUNTEER REGISTRATION PAGE!
Sign up now and get ready for launch in July 2020!
Our communities – just like our families, friends, and schools – play an important role in helping to shape who we are and who we become.
Earning your 40 hours of volunteer time is not only an important part of your secondary school experience – but also a wonderful way to begin your journey of giving back to your local community – and making it a better community for everyone.
So, we’d like to start by saying “Thank You”. Even though it’s a requirement for graduation, your time and effort are also very much appreciated.
SO HOW DOES GIGIT WORK ANYWAY?
To help you find volunteer opportunities that not only interest you , but that are also easily accessible based on your location, your school board has partnered with gigit – a social platform built especially for local communities, schools, non-profit organizations, students, and individual community members, to help match volunteers with the organizations that need them.
gigit not only finds and matches volunteers with opportunities, but also tracks all of your volunteer work and hours in one simple to use and easy to access place, so that when you’re ready to submit your time, it’s all collected and verified in one document you can submit to your school.
It’s a no brainer – which is great – because your brain is going to be busy learning!
PROUDLY PARTNERED WITH
AND, YOU’LL HAVE AN AMAZING RESUME WHEN YOU’RE DONE TOO.
All of the volunteer work you do and the skills and experiences you gain, will be collected into your very own professional gigit resume which you can use as part of your college or university application, as well as when you are out seeking paid employment.
Just like tracking and verifying your volunteer hours, your resume is built automatically once you create your personal gigit profile.
LET'S GET STARTED!
The first step is signing up to our new gigit platform which will be launching at the end of June. It’s important to get signed up now so you can get your profile built and start learning how to use gigit. This way you can get started on your volunteer hours this summer – or maybe even find a paid summer job on gigit as well!
Once you’ve signed up, watch your email for next steps to build your profile and start looking for opportunities!
Protecting the privacy of students, parents, families, and schools is really important. As a school board partner, gigit has been rigorously reviewed by the Board(s), and there are information safety measures and other privacy measures built right into the gigit platform that are there to protect everyone.
If you would like more information about your Board's privacy policies, online student safety, and their partnership with gigit, please contact your school board for more information.

gigit is a FREE, all-in-one social platform built especially for local communities that brings businesses, non-profits, groups, organizations, activities, events, schools, universities and colleges, volunteers, donors, paid workers, and community members together.
It’s a platform that creates community connections by building an online community hub, and it offers a multitude of ways to manage volunteers, events, fundraising activities, donors, campus activities, online stores, ticket sales, job and volunteer postings, and so much more – all while also giving back to the communities it helps to build through a portion of gigit revenue donation.
