WHY COMMUNITY SERVICE IS REQUIRED?

Since citizenship is at the core of the IB philosophy, community and service activities are a requirement in the Global Leadership Academy. G.L.A. students are to perform 30 hours of community service each school year.  Students should participate in service opportunities that interest them and offer an opportunity to get involved in the community. The process of finding service opportunities is the responsibility of the student.
