Student Service Leader

This award is for a student service leader(s) who is able to demonstrate a commitment to his/her community and how he/she has used learning, critical thinking and problem-solving skills to address an expressed community need.

The student(s) must be able to demonstrate:

  • personal growth through service
  • integration into the school’s service learning program
  • learning outcomes
  • personal reflection
  • a deeper understanding of the community/individual with whom he/she undertook the project


Up to three US$1,500 awards will be granted to a school in recognition of a student or a group of students who demonstrate their service and commitment to the community. The school may choose to allocate this funding to a project or make this available for students to attend the AISA Global Issues Service Summit (GISS). Students will receive a plaque and letter from AISA in recognition of their outstanding achievement.
