Any ideas of what can I do for CAS?

Recommended Posts

Hey,

CAS stands for Creativity, Action/Activity, and Service. You need to do activities that show these 3 things. 

Creativity could be things like working for your school newspaper, painting a mural, other art type work, or even literature based things like submitting your poetry to a magazine. Also, at my school at least, MUN (model united nations) counts as creativity as well.

Action/Activity could be things that are active like playing sports, going to the gym, doing yoga, etc.

Service is generally community service through the form of fundraising, raising awareness or doing hands-on service. This could also include things like peer tutoring.

You will also have a required amount of CAS hours you completed throughout the school year and you have to find something to do for your CAS project. Your CAS experiences can range from just a single day to the whole course of the school year, however, keep in mind that you cannot have any gaps between your CAS experiences, which is why it's helpful to have several experiences that last a longer duration of time. 

For your CAS project, it can be practically anything, as long as it addresses one of the CAS branches that are mentioned. To REALLY get an interesting CAS project, try to incorporate all three pillars into it.

Also, keep up to date with your CAS experiences, it can get really messy when you forget to put them into managebac (or whatever system you use). Best of luck!
