Citizen's Academy Logo

**The 2020 DavenportU Citizens Academy sessions have been postponed. They will be rescheduled in 2021**

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 6:00 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. will start with an introduction to city government and conclude with graduation at a 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 or older.  Attendance to all nine sessions is highly encouraged.
