There is also a weekly accountability log or reflection journal and closure activity at the end of each semester.

Office Internships

Office interns help with photocopying, making bulletin boards and preparing documents, among other small tasks. They also act as messengers between the office and students or teachers in the classrooms.

Every graduate of ISG-Jubail is required to commit to 10 hours of service per year starting with the 2015-16 academic year. This 40 hours of service is reflected on their official high school transcript. Students who arrive after the beginning of 9th grade will meet their service requirement by completing 10 hours per year of attendance at ISG-Jubail. “Service” is defined as volunteering for their school, their city, their country, and/or even the world community. Service must take place outside of class time. Hours are approved and recorded by the college counselor.

The following is an alphabetized list of some of the service opportunities at ISG-Jubail:

ASA: Peer-to-Peer Tutoring/Study Buddies

High achieving student tutors are paired with students needing assistance with one or more school subjects and/or general organizational and study skills. For one hour weekly after school, the tutor engages their student in interactive activities such as verbally paraphrasing something they read to demonstrate understanding, reviewing for a test or practicing skills or habits such as time management, goal setting and/or maintaining an organized locker and notebooks.

Custodians Appreciation Luncheon

After raising money through bake sales and various fun competitions, students either donate an equal amount of money to each custodian or provide a special lunch for them on a Saturday when they are here working. This usually happens around the holidays.

Fun Run at Murjan

Students volunteer to help out at the 10K run at Murjan compound. They offered baby-sitting service, handed out breakfast and water and assisted in timing and other administrative type tasks.

Habitat for Humanity Trip

Habitat for Humanity is a worldwide, nonprofit organization which is dedicated to eliminating poverty housing and homelessnessness worldwide. HFHI invite people of all backgrounds, races and religions to build together in partnership with families in need. Habitat’s building program seeks and mobilizes volunteers for a life-transforming experience, both for the volunteers and for the families whose home they help build. Each school year, students from grades 9-11 participate in a HFHI Building project in countries such as Sri Lanka, India Bangladesh and the Philippines. This is a life-changing experience for all involved but it is also a chance to have a hands-on experience with a different culture and way of living.

Me to We

This is a commitment for children to help other children worldwide through fundraising events. ISG Jubail is currently supporting children in Kenya. This is through Free the Children Organization in Canada.

PALs: Peers as Leaders

Selected students at each grade level undergo training in order to be part of the student welcome committee. They assist with tours of the school for new families. They help new students by eating with them at lunchtime, introducing them to other students and answering their questions about sports, student council and after school activities, among other things. After the first two weeks, PALs are available as a point person for new students until the end of the semester.

Spring Spectacular

High School students are invited by the Parent Teacher Organization to volunteer at Spring Spectacular, a school fundraising event. Students help run different booths, games and performances. Students who volunteer receive an official school service certificate from the PTO.

Usher Jaguars

Students volunteer to usher official ISG Jubail events like band and choir concerts, awards ceremonies and art exhibitions. They have to arrive 30 minutes early and wear black pants and a white dress shirt. They welcome people as they arrive, they pass out programs and answer questions. They also assist with seating people when necessary.

WOW Week School and Community Service Opportunity

Students participate in service projects both on and off campus. During WOW 2015, students painted the cage, the custodian shed and the fire drill numbers. They cleaned-up the girls’ and boys’ locker rooms. In the locker rooms, they washed and dried any unclaimed clothing and donated it to charity. At the end of the week, students worked together to clean up a local beach and finished the week with team building and reflection activities. Each student painted a tile to commemorate their service to the school and the tiles will be become part of the school landscape.
