The 12th grade civics internship is a full year class for seniors in the William R. Day Civics Institute. The first semester focuses specifically on Ravenna History. Through primary sources and historical architecture, students investigate what makes Ravenna unique and improves their understanding of our community. The second semester is a local government internship. This class provides hands-on learning and fosters a deeper understanding of civic life through a rotation of internships with civic and community partners.
The first rotation recently concluded at the Portage Metropolitan Housing Authority (PMHA) and the second rotation has begun. It is a very rewarding experience for both the students and the management team at PMHA.
