The COVID-19 crisis has created many health, social and economic challenges. Just as you’re concerned about your ability to save for your education and secure future employment, not-for-profits face disruptions to the essential community services they provide.
In response, the Government of Canada has created the Canada Student Service Grant (CSSG), a program that will provide qualified post-secondary students with safe, inclusive and accessible learning and volunteer opportunities to address relevant COVID-19 challenges at Canadian not-for-profits this summer. Participating students will also be eligible to apply for the CSSG—from $1,000–$5,000 to be used towards post-secondary education and expenses.
Working with KNSC and your fellow students (we are recruiting up to 100 volunteers for our club) in our community, you can put your interests and abilities to work for a not-for-profit cause this summer.
You can give back in an intentional way, plus enjoy these benefits:
• Free access to courses, training and skill development with LinkedIn Learning.
• Valuable on-the-job training and work experience.
• Eligibility to apply for the CSSG.
We need your help to support our community, so apply today!
The CSSG will be paid in a lump-sum amount based on the number of validated volunteer hours you’ve completed between June 15 and September 15, 2020. There are five award levels:
The CSSG for post-secondary education is in addition to the Canada Emergency Student Benefit ($1,250 monthly), so volunteers receiving the CESB are also eligible to apply for the CSSG. (However, if you are receiving or have applied for the Canada Emergency Response Benefit (CERB) ($2,000 monthly), you are NOT eligible). Please review the complete CSSG eligibility requirements.
