Learn about the inner workings of Johnson County Government and how you can get more involved in our community through JoCo Academy (formerly called Citizens Academy)! The Spring 2020 program will meet every Tuesday for 10 weeks, February 11th through April 14th, from 6:00 – 9:00 p.m. Dinner will be provided at no cost at the beginning of each session. The application deadline for the Spring program is January 17th. Apply here.
The goal of JoCo Academy is three-fold:
• Enhance citizen knowledge of county operations and services
• Encourage a unified community identity
• Increase volunteerism in Johnson County boards and commissions
JoCo Academy participants hear presentations from staff, perform hands-on activities, and take tours of various county departments and agencies, including Wastewater, Corrections, Libraries, Parks and Recreation, the Sheriff’s Office and more.
The Kansas City Star recently featured our academy and that article is available here.
