G10 Year-round Service Program

The IB encourages students to engage with the community through service. From the beginning of October to the end of May, each pre-IB student at DBS would be partnered with a local charity to serve the community off school hours, on a weekly or biweekly basis. This long-term commitment trains pre-IB students to reflect in depth, demonstrate perseverance and build connections with the local community for future CAS opportunities when pursuing the IBDP.
