Citizens Academy

Citizen's Academy Logo

DavenportU is a nine‐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!

The Monday sessions, from 5:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. with light refreshments at 5:30 p.m., will start with an introduction to city government and conclude with graduation at the May 23 City Council meeting.  In between, participants will learn the basics of city governments as well as its more intricacies like site selection, community policing and budget planning. 

Enrollment is limited and participants must be 18 years of age.  Attendance to all nine sessions is highly encouraged.
