"Citizens of the World'' : Service Learning
Service Learning Philosophy
Authentic and integrated into the curriculum - linked to the Sustainable Development Goals
Contextual and hands-on learning experiences
Meaningful service is achieved through the 5 stages - Investigation, Planning, Action, Reflection and Demonstration
Service partners align with IST’s mission, safety and security measures and have sustainable goals
Establish and nurture professional development for teachers and student leaders
The Service Learning program at IST includes both internal and external service action possibilities that includes the immediate school community (students, parents, teachers, administrators, support staff), as well as including community service partners from the wider Dar es Salaam area, Tanzania, East Africa and even the global community. It ensures that there are authentic clear benefits for all partners, that investment is proportional to return for students and their growth / learning, that the relationship is reciprocal and based on mutual respect and shared goals and has a diverse group of partnerships.
