Registration Open for the Second Annual Citizens' Academy
Residents are encouraged and welcome to apply for the County’s second annual Citizens’ Academy, a free and immersive program that will provide participants a behind-the-scenes look and deeper understanding of how Forsyth County Government functions.
Participants will have the opportunity to take classes with officials from the Finance, Fire, Planning and Community Development departments and many more.
“The Citizens’ Academy is designed to educate residents about Forsyth County Government and create champions of Forsyth County who are inspired to become community leaders themselves,” said County Manager David McKee. “We are excited to welcome another class of residents to the program and look forward to their continued contributions to making this County the best place to live, work and play.”
Participants must be at least 18 years of age and either a resident of Forsyth County, a small business owner in the County or attend a college or university located in the County. Participants must also be willing to make a commitment to attend the full program which will be held twice a month from 6-8 p.m. on Wednesdays beginning May 24 through Aug. 30.
Those interested in applying for the Citizen’s Academy must submit a completed application available by clicking here or through the Community Engagement page on forsythco.com. Selected applicants will be asked to complete a confidentiality and liability form prior to the start of the program. Space in the program is limited, and selection is on a first come, first served basis.
Applications must be submitted by Friday, May 12. Candidates accepted into the academy will be notified shortly after. To view the schedule and apply, please visit the Community Engagement page. For more information about the Citizens’ Academy, please contact Taylor Hall at TDHall@forsythco.com.
