High school students enrolled in the International Baccalaureate/Creativity, Activity, Service program recently took a field trip in their own school. During the event, the students met with career coordinator Ryan Vollmuth to discuss how they can job shadow and find apprenticeships in the local area, with school social worker Robin Cutler to talk about community work, and with school nurse Sharon Kerrigan to learn about fields in medicine.
IB diploma candidates must complete an independent project that meets CAS requirements, which state that students will be creatively and actively engaged in servicing their community.
“The best way to get ideas and a plan of action for these projects is right at home,” said IB/CAS coordinator Virginia Scudder. “Many of the students do not realize all of the amazing resources right at their own door.”
