DRCOG's 2019 Citizens' Academy

Through the nationally recognized Citizens’ Academy, participants learn from local experts and leaders, network with other residents and act on what they’ve learned. Since 2007, more than 800 residents from around the region have completed the academy. It is a great opportunity for emerging leaders interested in learning more about regional issues and developing their civic capacity.

Topics covered will include transportation, economic vitality, housing, civic engagement and more. Each session of the course will consist of lectures from subject matter experts, small group interactions and networking. Beyond the group sessions, participants will develop individual action plans to put into place upon completing the academy. Formerly run by the Transit Alliance, the Denver Regional Council of Governments (DRCOG), took over the program in 2018.

If you are interested in increasing your knowledge of regional issues and enhancing your civic leadership skills, DRCOG will be accepting applications for the spring 2019 session from February 1 until March 8. The free seven-week academy will be held from April 4 – May 16. Learn more and apply here: https://drcog.org/programs/citizens-academy
