IB Student Initiatives

Goal: To represent students' voice and sense of leadership within Illinois IB schools 

This committee will create opportunities for shared experiences which support the academic and co-curricular development of PYP, MYP and DP students across the state. Through IIBS sponsorship of special events, student-centered workshops, scholarships and other support initiatives, and in the spirit of the IBO Mission Statement, IIBS students will "grow into leaders who possess the intellectual, emotional and social skills to live, learn and work in a rapidly globalizing world."
