The MYP community project focuses on service learning through community action in MYP Year 3. It encourages students to explore their rights and responsibilities, and work towards creating positive impact in their communities. Through their community projects, students participate in a sustained, self directed inquiry within a global context. Students get to reflect on the outcomes of their work and gain awareness of the needs of their communities.

This comprehensive community project handbook is designed to support students on their learning journeys. It contains guidelines to help students plan their inquiry, action and reflection processes. The handbook gives comprehensive information on how to develop a plan of action, maintain the process journal and prepare for the community project presentation. It also has a detailed timeline to help students manage their time better, along with useful templates!

Inside the handbook:

  • Guidelines on the different aspects of the community project to share with students
  • Structured breakdown of the community project objectives
  • Handy templates for students to document their work
