CAS trips - 2018 style!

As you may have noticed, CAS trips are organised a little differently this year.  There are 5 trips in total, and instead of going on a tour organised by a company, you will organise the trip in your houses, and then go on the trip that you have created.

Why are students organising the trips?

Here at AIC we take pride in teaching students skills that are useful in the real world.  Working together to organise a trip requires you to be communicators, risk-takers, principled and many things besides.  Most importantly, it will teach you how to organise a holiday, arrange and budget transport, book hotels and find and evaluate the cost/quality of activities and restaurants.  We want to have graduates that can travel independently, and who don’t need to book onto a tour group and ‘follow the flag’ around a series of national monuments in a foreign country without thinking, or even communicating with local people. This is not who we want you to become.

Why is it a service trip?

Helping people in genuine need is a gift of kindness, and the most important thing to give is not money, but time.  This trip is an opportunity to be caring through teaching children, or talking to and assisting the elderly or the sick, or even volunteering at an animal shelter will teach you far more about the world and the people in it.  You are organising the trip, and so you get to choose who you want to help.

Dedicating some of your time to helping others as a service CAS is not simply about fulfilling requirements for your CAS portfolio, but about helping yourself grow into a more caring person who is connected to the world around them, and participates in it.

Challenge yourself and see what you can arrange for yourself, and for your friends.  Find someone in the community you can help, and go help them.  I think you will be surprised not only by what you can achieve, but what you can learn about by leaving your comfort zone and taking the opportunity to volunteer and help others that are in need, and in the process you will become someone who doesn’t need to ‘follow the flag’ when you are travelling.
