Welcome to the High School Service Learning home page for American International School Dhaka (AISD). Our service learning program began in 2009 as a way to enable our students to live our school-wide vision, “to prepare students to become stewards of a just and sustainable world.” To meet our mission of creating students that contribute to a changing global society, the high school facilitates a service learning requirement that enables students to understand the purpose and the process of service learning.
Each student must choose a community service organization that will benefit the local Bangladeshi community and, with fellow students, create both short term and long term sustainable plans of how to best serve the organization for the school year and into the future.
Service Learning currently has an ongoing relationship with local community organizations that work with issues including educating street children, drug rehabilitation, environmental concerns, rehabilitation of the paralyzed, victims of acid attacks, animal rights, and other areas of social concern. Our mission is to develop an ongoing relationship with these organizations that will continue from year to year

Guest speakers and experts in these and other service fields are brought in to support students’ development of these projects and to enhance a broader understanding of service. Weekly meetings and scheduled release days, along with ongoing site visits, are dedicated to fulfilling the goals of the plan and providing an opportunity for students to interact with the people they are helping.

By educating our children to the positive attributes of service we believe that they will continue to grow not only as life long learners but also as compassionate and caring global citizens.
