Welcome to the home of the Civic Academy (formerly 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 Civic Academy alumni!
