Purpose

Why you should do service learning

Ultimately the purpose of service learning is to respond to an authentic community need.

A key attribute of the IB learner profile is caring and CP students through service learning can act to make a positive difference in the lives of others and the world around them.

In the words of the IB,

'The process of Service Learning provides opportunities for students to make a meaningful contribution to community and society.'

Your service experiences can be life-changing, both for you and for others! You can help solve a real problem in your school or in your neighbourhood. Perhaps there is a cause you feel passionately about? This is your opportunity to find a way to champion that cause.

You can be the catalyst for real change.
