In Ontario Secondary Schools, every student must complete a minimum of forty hours of community involvement towards an Ontario Secondary School Diploma. Students are required to research and locate organizations in which to volunteer for—a process that is time consuming and daunting. In response to this problem, Beyond 40 was created to establish a community that connects organizations and students together.
Designed to encourage community activism, Beyond 40 helps students easily find activities that suit their interests through a custom filtering process associated with their profile. Beyond 40 was made to focus on the importance of generating interest in community activism to improve the lives of students and the societies they are part of. The app includes a smart feature known as the Tap System, and can be used by school-board faculty members to track students' hours.
