Surely the end of all education is service to others.

CPS Graduation Requirement
Beginning with the Class of 2020, high school students must complete 2 classroom-integrated service learning projects. Service projects must be completed as follows
1. Successful completion of a project in Civics or AP U.S. Government
2. Successful completion of a classroom project in another course.
Service-learning is a proven civic education practice that extends learning into the community and builds a strong sense of agency among young people. Chicago Public Schools requires that all students complete three service-learning projects in order to graduate. Service-learning is a teaching strategy that connects classroom curriculum with service projects. Service-learning engages students in projects that serve the community while building social, civic, and academic skills.
