What is that, Bhavya? I’m not familiar with it.

It is a final year high school program which is internationally recognized - the equivalent of Year 12, A levels or whatever the final year of high school is called wherever you are.

Given our age group, I would be surprised if anyone were in that category. My daughter is closer to that age than I am!

Some schools offer it as an alternative here but I don't remember any of our members say they were doing it.

I'm a grad student, so I guess that one passed me by :wink:

I'm from Kashmir, but finished high school in the U.S.

I was asking about it because it has a core component called CAS, standing for creativity, activity and service. The volunteering i do at Librivox counts as service. However, whatever project I take up must have a supervisor. I was wondering who could be my supervisor for this activity, and was looking for suggestions by other IB students.

Where are you physically located? In what country? Perhaps there is a LibriVox administrator somewhere in your home country who would be willing to do this.

Using Librivox for service can be tricky. See this section of our Wiki: Questions Regarding Volunteering. We don't have anyone who can sign forms or verify service performed, unless the recording duration posted on the catalog page is enough. We get questions about this regularly (for scouts, school projects, etc) but I don't know if anyone has been able to get service credit for Librivox recordings yet.
