The IB Diploma Programme includes the development of a personal commitment to life-long global citizenship. At ISBerne, all students, IB and non-IB, are required to complete the Service element of CAS (Creativity, Action, and Service) in order to receive a diploma. Rather than looking at global service as an abstract academic discussion, the CAS Programme at ISBerne provides actual field experience in working with local projects in remote locations. In my long experience with NGOs, I’ve found that there are 2 kinds of people working there: those who sit in offices and discuss socio-economic problems in the theoretical…and those who go out and work in the field with the heat and bugs. 🙂
In this segment, students recount the experience of working at a school in Morocco.
