10th Anniversary Campaign

Design Innovation Propels ISAK Community Service

Community service is an integral part of life at ISAK and an important way students can work toward positive change. Since the beginning of the school year, our inaugural 10th grade class has created several student-led activities that are helping to bring positive change to the local Karuizawa community.

What are ISAK students doing?

Here are just a few of the student-led community service projects:

  • Teaching English at a Karuizawa elementary school
  • Visiting elderly neighbors at a local nursing home
  • Engaging with local high school students through a friendship club
  • Hosting community events on the ISAK campus
  • Developing fundraising initiatives for local service organizations

The ISAK students use their Design Innovation skills to constantly evaluate and improve upon their weekly community service work. Volunteer activities are documented into a digital document so students can review and reflect upon their efforts. Outcomes from  previous experiences help students generate new ideas for the future. Ideas are categorized by the students into three groups: For Us, For the Community, and For the Larger World.

We’re inspired by a 10th grade class so clearly focused on what they can do to work for positive change!

Imagine… if there was an ISAK lower school!

Dear Friends of UWC ISAK,

UWC ISAK is celebrating its 10th anniversary! We are proud of where we’ve come from, and we are excited about the next decade.

At this important milestone, we are wondering – in pursuit of broadening our impact, could an ISAK Lower School be considered as one of the options and would it be feasible? A school that embraces ISAK values and vision for a better future?

As we embark on this journey, if you would like to participate in possible market research and receive updates, please subscribe to our mailing list.
