Salt Lake City, Utah – City Academy Charter High School students have been completing service-learning internship projects as a part of their graduation requirements for the past 18 years. On Thursday, April 21st, at 4:00pm until 5:30pm, students will have displayed, something that was personally meaningful to them during their internship. The public is welcome to attend this event. City Academy students have served and learned with 150 different organizations up to date.

A service-learning Internship is much more than just volunteering for something or someone. It is both service and academic research centered around issues a student cares about and at the same time, a student having the opportunity to learn in a project-based internship experience with action research, reflection and developed results. A student will choose from one of the five categories – Human, Animal, Environmental, Civic, and Social Issues

Each student selects an organization outside their family or school, where they would like to do their service learning. While working with Executive Director – Sonia Woodbury, they come up with one or two questions that they feel are important while they are in service. At the end of the service, they are required to answer the question.

Executive Director – Sonia Woodbury said “This event is something we look forward to each year. To witness the passion that our students have at the end of serving, is just an incredible thing to be part of.
Their passion increases and they realize that serving and caring for others, is important in one’s life. I couldn’t be more thrilled to honor them at this event”

This event is in honor of Global Youth Service Days, this exhibition display is conducted each year. This event is open to the public.
