What is a Senior Project:
During the final year in the program, students must complete a Senior Project. The purpose of the Senior Project is for students to showcase what they have learned throughout their time in the program. The Senior Project is a designed to be a gift back to the community, with an advocacy focus. Students must present their project to a panel of CIVITAS parents and other community members in the spring of their senior year.
Past Examples of Senior Projects:
Students have completed Senior Projects in a variety of different fields. A few examples of these fields are Mental Health Awareness, Voter Outreach, and Environmental cleanup.
