One of the essential elements of the International Baccalaureate (IB) Diploma Programme is a commitment to service. Last year IB students at Goshen High School demonstrated their commitment to service by helping those affected by the water crisis in Flint, MI. Learning that families did not need more fresh water but rather a way to recycle all the empty bottles, Goshen’s IB students went to work to secure barrels to use for recycling. Last week, the IB students from Goshen High School got a visit from the IB students from Flint Southwestern Academy and learned first-hand what their efforts meant to the Flint Michigan community.
