Citizen's Academy is an interactive forum for citizens to learn first-hand how the City of New Haven is structured and managed. Residents will also learn the City’s relationship with Allen County and other public agencies; what services and programs are available through various city agencies; how to access needed services; and how to apply this knowledge by serving as an information resource for neighborhoods, non-profit groups and local businesses in New Haven.
The Academy format brings together elected and appointed officials with Academy participants in an informal setting where participants learn through presentations and information sharing. There’s a real benefit to this program. Some participants now serve on various boards and commissions and some participants have been elected to City Council.
Effective leadership with a sound understanding of community development in today’s environment is critical to a community’s future. We encourage you to get involved and participate in this educational series.
The Citizens’ Academy is free to the public. Pre-registration is required.
