Service learning is an integral and inspiring part of the JMS experience, and empowers our students to make a positive difference on campus, in Jakarta and elsewhere in the world. Our Community Service learning and IB CAS (Creativity, Action and Service) activities provide our students with exciting and transformative opportunities to serve others.
These activities are varied and dynamic, they range from on-school environmental and fund-raising initiatives, to engaging with members of our local community through programmes such as the JMS CAS Visiting Day.
Through our Community Service learning programme, JMS students not only learn about global citizenship and responsibility, but grow into empowered, compassionate and empathetic individuals who proactively seek to make our world a better place.
