Community Exchange is any voluntary activity that is designed to address a challenge or need in the community. The purpose of this program at Futuraskolan International School of Stockholm is to give students the chance to develop as global citizens as well as to create an awareness and preparation for this requirement in the IB program. Community exchange helps students to understand the world around them, helps develop their international mindedness and creates empathy and compassion for others. It is designed to expand their view of the local and international community, while instilling a sense of purpose and pride regarding their own abilities and interests. Community exchange is a powerful act of gratitude which enhances one’s sense of self and belonging.
