Hi everyone, next year I am starting IB, and well I want to start thinking about CAS ideas. I would like to hear about your experiences and maybe recommendations in this area! Thanks!

Hi! I know these might not be the best for everyone but it’s what I’ve done: learning to knit, volunteering at the animal shelter, hiking, being on the swim team, playing violin with an orchestra, helping out the local elementary school.... things like that.

Learning an instrument is very meditative and is a good way to go for creativity I think

Volunteer to help with any ptc’s. literally apply for almost every position you can within the school (prefect, student council, peer mentor etc..) they all count as cas (for a long period of time too!!)

@Start a club at your school. You can become the founder and leader and when you graduate, you can pass on the leadership to another ib student and they can use the club as a CAS project. For clubs, you can do many things such as performing for events in school or your community or create an event where your club helps out specific people in need. I am the founder of my school's guitar club and we have performed for a few school events. Students who are well experienced in guitar also helps new students who don't know how to play and teach them how to play. So I would either take what jacobearthgem proposed and learn a new instrument. Once you've learned the instrument well (or mastered) you can form a club and try to share your learning experience with other people interested in a similar activity yoy do. :)
