New club offers opportunities for NHS and IB Diploma students

 

According to junior Achieving Change Together co-president Yonah Davis, the purpose of the club is to provide students throughout the school with volunteer opportunities.

“(ACT will) take your hours for you, we’ll coordinate the events and all you have to do is show up which makes volunteering really easy and totally stress free,” Davis said.

Club adviser Jenny Magdal said Achieving Change Together (ACT) focuses on giving back to the community through IB diploma requirements.

 

“(ACT) It works really well for their “CAS,” which is creativity activity and service for their IB diploma program requirements, and as IB Diploma coordinator I felt that it was my responsibility to help and support them in that,” Magdal said.

Davis said the new club helps National Honors Society Members and IB Diploma candidates.

“Our hours will count towards both of these activities (NHS and IB Diploma),” Davis said. “We will provide service of tracking your hours by using our advanced software system so there is no hassle.”

According to Davis, ACT plans to meet two to three times a month with a variety of locations to volunteer.

“Some (locations) might be site locations such as STEP and some of them will be at the school,” Davis said.

This next ACT volunteer opportunity is 3:30pm Oct. 3 at STEP.
