Sense of Social Responsibility: Upholding a Legacy of Service


As a YCIS student, your child will learn to care deeply for the world and its people. This legacy of service, which began with the school’s founding in Hong Kong more than 80 years ago, lives on through student service work and community involvement.


YCIS students develop a caring attitude toward people and the environment.

  • Middle School students plan and carry out their own service projects, which have true impact on our community
  • Students host events to raise money for Seeds of Hope Charity, which helps build schools and create educational opportunities in rural China
  • Elementary students explore ways to put character traits into action by planning simple, age-appropriate service projects with teacher guidance
  • Preschoolers learn the importance of service work in the classroom and from guest speakers, and take part in community service activities
