The Harrisonburg Citizen Academy is a 12 week program comprised of one 2-hour session per week designated to teach residents about the City and the services it provides. Participants will hear from different departments on their daily operations in a hands-on learning environment.
This program is typically held on Thursday evenings and runs from the end of August through the middle of November.
Applications will be accepted throughout the year and further communication will be made later in the summer.
