Charitable Work

AIS/B recognizes that the development of good citizens and international leaders in the modern world requires more than research and critical thinking. This understanding, shared with the International Baccalaureate Organization (IBO), is the impulse that motivated the implementation of a two-year human rights course and a community service requirement. The IB requires students to fulfill 200 hours of community service as an extracurricular activity.

The program, called CAS (Creativity, Action, Service) includes community service and participation in arts and sports. The Human Rights Program of two years duration is based on the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, adopted by the United Nations in 1948. The course makes history come alive for students, incorporating evidence, witnesses and the voices of resistance and rescue. The course is presented as a challenge to the understanding of students about the world and its codes of ethics and morality, and it also strives to make them grow emotionally.

The school’s community service projects provide students to apply the principles of human rights and gain the tools to address critical issues in their own community and the world.  AIS/B students make a difference in the community and the world by collaborating with the programs of organizations.
