Registration for 2018 Pensacola Citizens Academy now open

The City of Pensacola is now taking registrations for enrollment in the 2018 Pensacola Citizens Academy.

The Academy is an eight week, hands-on, interactive inside look to the inner workings of the City of Pensacola and its Departments. Tours and demonstrations make the course both informative and fun. Best of all it's free and there are no exams to take!

Here are four reasons why you should participate in the Pensacola Citizens Academy:

1. Get a Closer Look

The Pensacola Citizens Academy features site visits, field demonstrations, and department tours. You’ll get a one-of-a-kind opportunity to take a closer look at the City’s services and initiatives. The eight ­week program is an ideal way to learn about the tremendous efforts of City employees that make Pensacola “The Upside of Florida.”

2. Take a Backstage Tour of the City

The Pensacola Citizens Academy gives you a private tour of Pensacola, including inside looks at City Hall, Community Venues, the Pensacola Police Department and the Pensacola Fire Department.

3. Develop a New Perspective

You have a chance to step into to the role of a firefighter or a police officer and see what life is like in their departments.

4. Discover Ways to Get Involved

The program offers insight into ways that you can get involved in your community, highlighting volunteer opportunities as well as City Boards.

The 2018 Academy will run from 5:30 p.m. till 8:00 p.m. on Tuesday evenings, beginning March 6, and continue through April 24. Dinner is provided to registered participants each academy night.
