Citizens' Academy

Citizens Academy logo

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!




Applications for the Spring 2019 academy open Feb. 1!  The Spring 2019 Citizens' Academy takes place 6-9 p.m. Thursdays April 4 - May 16, at DRCOG's office in downtown Denver. FAQ here. Didn't see your question? Email us.
