Service and Action in the MYP

The goal for students' participation in Community and Service in the MYP is for students to extend their learning beyond the classroom, taking purposeful action to affect the world in which they live. The diagram above reflects the MYP cycle of inquiry as it relates to service.With appropriate guidance and support, MYP students should, through their engagement with service as action:

  • become more aware of their own strengths and areas for growth
  • undertake challenges that develop new skills
  • discuss, evaluate and plan student-initiated activities
  • persevere in action
  • work collaboratively with others
  • develop international-mindedness through global engagement, multilingualism and intercultural understanding
  • consider the ethical implications of their actions.
