The City of Pittsburgh’s Office of Community Affairs has announced that applications are currently being accepted for the Civic Leadership Academy Spring 2020 class. The Civic Leadership Academy is a free, 11-week course that encourages more informed community leadership by giving City residents an opportunity to learn about their local government. Each class meets with over fifteen departments, offices, bureaus, and authorities of the City of Pittsburgh to learn about their operations, programs, and services.
The Spring 2020 session of the Civic Leadership Academy will be held from 6:00 until 8:30 pm on Wednesdays, March 25 to June 10 (No class on April 8 in observance of Passover). Classes are available for any resident living within City of Pittsburgh limits, and to business owners who operate within the City of Pittsburgh. For more information, visit the Civic Leadership Academy web page. Residents can find the application online. Dinner and free childcare are available at every session. If you have questions, email Leah Friedman, or call 412.255.4773.
The deadline for applications is Sunday, March 1, 2020.
