Discover Explore Learn Volunteer Enrich (DELVE) is an experiential learning week which takes students throughout Thailand and South East Asia and into local communities where students experience unique learning experiences. These are usually built around deepening a students’ cultural understanding or partaking in community service to enrich the local community they are working with.
The Discover Explore Learn Volunteer Enrich DELVE program is designed to give students the experiences that will inspire them to become caring global citizens. Students will engage in sustainable service and/or gain awareness of issues that transcend borders. They will develop an understanding of issues of poverty, indigenous peoples, and environmental degradation and preservation while simultaneously helping people. Students will often plan and work as teams, strengthening their teamwork for a common goal of greater good. Students who successfully complete their DELVE course requirements will receive ¼ elective credit. DELVE is a required course for graduation from ISB.Our students may support local communities through their travel, engage in protection of the environment or direct service work for the benefit of others, and many of the trips also include an element of adventure and physical activity, such as hiking in Nepal or Bhutan, biking or scuba diving in Southern Thailand.
