Salt Lake City—City Academy charter school seniors showcased their service learning internship projects Thursday, April 12 from 4:30 to 6 p.m. at the charter school’s Multipurpose Room.  City Academy is located at 555 E. 200 S. in Salt Lake City.

According to City Academy Executive Director Sonia Woodbury, “Our mission is to graduate responsible, informed citizens who have achieved their best academic success.  As a part of that, we require that all of our students complete a service learning internship project as part of their graduation requirements.  These internships provide students with real-life experiences related to issues that are important to them.  Many internships are with local nonprofit organizations that are making a difference in the community. Our students have now served in 120 different community organizations over the years.  Plus, experiences gained through our program can really give students exposure to careers they may want to pursue in the future. ”

City Academy’s Senior Exhibition of Service Learning Internship Projects exhibit was open to the public.
