Service Learning Programme at VIS

2018-11-07

VIS encourages students to be socially active and engaged citizens on a local and global scale. As part of our annual collaboration with Bernardinų Park, all students from Early Childhood to Grade 10 had an opportunity to clean up our neighborhood and rake leaves at the local park. Yes, we consider issues such as climate change, but more importantly our students' involvement in the Service Learning Programme projects such as collaboration with Bernardinų park, support of elderly homes, volunteering practices around Vilnius cultivates culturally proficient learners. As we all know, the children of today will be the decision-makers of tomorrow. With civic engagement students gain academic knowledge and skills, interpersonal skills, and self-confidence. Finally, we continue working together with local communities to open new ideas, challenges and opportunities to grow our students' inquiring minds.
