Citizens' Academy

Citizens Academy students

Welcome to the home of the Citizens’ Academy, a program that helps build the civic capacity of the Denver region's residents. Through the seven-week course, the academy exposes participants to important regional issues like transportation, economic vitality, housing, civic engagement and more.

Each course includes weekly three-hour sessions consisting of lectures from local subject matter experts, small-group interactions and networking. In addition, participants develop individual action plans to put into place upon completing the academy.

We look forward to adding more informed and active metro-area residents to the 800-plus strong pool of Citizens' Academy alumni!

 

 

 

Due to COVID-19, the spring 2020 session was postponed until fall and will be Sept. 17 through Oct. 29. We are not currently accepting additional applications for the academy. Applications for the spring 2021 session will open next February.
