American School of Paris - Student life, Service Learning

Service Learning

Challenging our students to grow as leaders beyond the ASP walls is a deep-seeded value of our school. The ASP vision of excellence is to cultivate a broader spectrum of global understanding and develop a sense of responsibility that goes beyond one’s own life.

Engaging as global citizens; understanding the great diversity of humanity

ASP students of all ages can participate in service-learning opportunities. In fact, many of these opportunities were suggested and initiated by students. By participating, students have been able to give to others, and to learn more about themselves and the world around them.

Finding how to serve

Some programs involve providing support from a distance, others include on-site work. Whether in France or abroad, ASP students have learning that the rewards of contributing to a greater good transcends all borders.
