I am a high school student – can I get community service hours?
Yes!  Please be sure to bring with you any form from your high school that needs to be signed.
If I am a volunteer, why do I also need to register and pay to attend Limmud?
One of the principles of Limmud Toronto, like other Limmuds worldwide, is that we are all Participants and all volunteers. Many people give considerable amounts of time to Limmud, whether presenting, organizing, serving on a team, being a day-of volunteer – and we all pay to attend.  That said, those who volunteer at our day-long event are not scheduled for more than 3 hours so that day-of volunteers at our annual event are able to enjoy Limmud programming for at least half of the day – we offer those volunteering for more than 3 hours a discounted rate.  Special arrangements can be made for those who cannot afford the regular price.

High school students who are volunteering for community service hours and will not be attending sessions are not required to pay and register separately with the logistics coordinator.

Great, I’m ready to make a commitment and volunteer. How do I do it?
