Final Request for Village of Bellevue 2016 Citizens Academy Students - Classes start March 10

The Village is making a final call for students to sign up for the Village of Bellevue Citizens Academy. If you can only attend a few classes we are still very happy to accept you as a student. Participants will attend one evening per night over a period of six weeks. Sessions will last approximately an hour and half. Village staff will facilitate the sessions and provide in depth information on administration, local government, law enforcement, fire protections, public works, budget/finance, community development and leisure services. There are no tests or grades, it is simply to gain more information about the community that you live and take pride in.

The goals of the academy are to provide an educational experience for participants at the same time offering an opportunity for residents and business owners to ask questions and to present their ideas. For many participants this opportunity will lead to an increase in community involvement and volunteerism.

Class Dates: Thursday, March 10; Thursday, March 17; Thursday, March 31; Thursday, April 7; Thursday, April 14; Thursday, April 21; April 27 graduation at the Village Board Meeting
