At JIS, we use our heads, hands and hearts to learn about ourselves, to change and to develop responsibility toward others and the world around us.
From a very early age, JIS students are exposed to the values and direct impacts of compassion, empathy and community services on the immediate world around us.
Our Service Learning program, therefore, encompasses the entire school and encourages students from Grade 1 through Grade 12 to take part in a range of outreach activities that emphasize a humanitarian approach to being Best for the World.
Our collective goal is to ensure that meaningful Service Learning is embedded into the curriculum at every grade level.
JIS has a collective commitment to addressing issues of global citizenship, environmental sustainability, and intercultural learning and for providing opportunities for service learning and engagement with Indonesia, organizations and schools around the world.
