An Extraordinary Opportunity to Learn
Project World at ACIS offers service learning tours for International Baccalaureate (IB) students who are ready to transform lives and be transformed themselves. With us, they can travel the world and have a positive impact wherever they go.
Meeting CAS Criteria
We believe that students should have a CAS (Creativity, Action, Service) learning opportunity that is genuine, memorable, and meaningful. ACIS and experts at International Education Consultants have a complete understanding of the CAS experiential model — plan, act, observe, reflect — and how to fulfill CAS requirements.
- Each Project World tour was developed with the eight CAS learning outcomes in mind, and students may achieve some or all of these outcomes throughout the journey.
- The purpose of each tour is to join forces with a host school or organization in another country and assist them with a service learning project.
- Organized briefings and debriefings led by the group leader during the tour help students create a reflective journal that expresses their plan, expectations and goals.
- The tour incorporates theory of knowledge (TOK) elements during the written and spoken reflection process.
- Students have the opportunity to produce a final reflection/personal essay that meets IB standards and gives them a deeper understanding of the CAS experience.
