The Humble High School International Baccalaureate students hosted their first Philanthropy Day Showcase in conjunction with National Philanthropy Day on Nov. 16. These young philanthropists worked over a year and a half to develop their social impact projects.
“Each student group showed poised and professionalism as they talked about their projects and nonprofit partners,” Stacey Hamlet, IB CAS coordinator, said. “It was very exciting to watch them share their personal passions for service with their families, our administration, and the community. I am extremely proud of these students and of the great work they have done and are continuing to do within our community, both on a local and global level!"
The Humble High School International Baccalaureate Diploma Program is an academically acclaimed two-year program that prepares students for the rigors of college course work. The IB aims to develop inquiring, knowledgeable and caring young people who help create a better and more peaceful world through intercultural understanding and respect.
National Philanthropy Day, an official day established in 1986, is a celebration of philanthropy, giving, volunteering, and charitable engagement that highlights accomplishments, large and small, that philanthropy makes to our society and the world.
