SALT LAKE CITY -- Teenagers in Salt Lake City now have a visible reminder of their community service. They unveiled a mural Thursday outside of the 4th Street Clinic -- a nonprofit health clinic for the homeless.

The students are part of the Neighborhood Works program, which teaches them life skills and job training. They say their art promotes "helping hands."

"I know that later in life it's always going to be here, and I can always come by and be proud of myself and know that I did that and I accomplished something in life," said young artist Stephanie Swasey.

The project took three months to complete.
