Citizens Academy

Davenport Citizens Academy is a ten-week program aimed at connecting citizens to their local government. If you have ever been curious about how the City prioritizes projects or how heavy a Firefighters turnout gear is – this academy could be for you!

Sessions run from 6:00 p.m. - 8:30 p.m., starting with an introduction to city government and concluding with graduation at a City Council meeting. In between, participants will learn the basics of city government as well as community development processes, community policing, and budget planning. Applications are currently not being accepted. 

Enrollment is limited and participants must be 18 years of age or older. Applications to participate will be open in January 2024. Check back here to apply.
