Community and Service

Making a Difference

Community service is a key part of ISZL’s curriculum as we want our students to be responsible world citizens. Our students engage in service projects ranging from fundraising to hands-on involvement with service agencies. They gain insight into the problems faced by others less fortunate and the satisfaction of knowing that they may have made a difference by giving their time, energy and sometimes financial support.

ISZL associates with a limited number of official charities, so that our community is not overwhelmed by frequent requests and our efforts can have maximum impact.

The charities Nawa Asha Griha (NAG), Cedar Foundation and KidsHeart receive the support of our entire student body, while our efforts with Kids of Africa are carried out solely by Zug Campus students. Students in Grades 11 and 12 also participate in Personal Development Week (PDW) trips each September that are designed to support specific communities around the world that need assistance. The feedback from our students and faculty best explain the benefits of our service learning efforts:
