Service Learning

ISB has students engaged in service throughout the years.  Students must refer to the MYP and DP CAS requirements for details and record their experiences in ManageBac.

Here is a sample of activities they can participate in:

  • Sign up to volunteer at your local library
  • Go to your local elementary school and ask about upcoming events (eg. science fair, math night, carnival)
  • Help out your former elementary school teachers with grading tests, making copies, filing work
  • Sign up to be a volunteer at THPRD
  • Ask around your neighborhood and see if anyone needs help
  • Pick up the trash in your neighborhood park
  • Read to younger kids at your local school, day care, church etc.
  • Pull weeds and ivy (check out www.solv.org)
  • Help out at a retirement center, spend some time with the elderly
  • Teach someone to use technology applications
  • Design and maintain a webpage for a non-profit organization
  • Babysit for a family that needs some help (at NO cost or it doesn't count)
  • Sign up to work a shift at the Oregon Food Bank or Sunshine Pantry
  • Attend a community event and help set up
  • Organize a drive for local schools or family shelters
