Citizens Academy


San Carlos Citizens Academy Logo

Adult community members who want to get more involved with the City have the opportunity to participate in a free nine-week Citizens Academy to engage with City of San Carlos staff and learn about city government. Opportunities include:

  • Meeting with our leaders, department directors and staff.
  • Learning how individual departments operate, with complete overviews and hands-on activities.
  • Understanding how we allocate funds and how we make decisions.

This is a unique way for you to participate in lively discussions and interactive activities with fellow community members and become a more involved and informed citizen. The Academy will continue as long as there is an interest from the community.

If you are interested in learning about our student program, visit Youth Citizens Academy.
