The Institute of Local Government has compiled this list of citizen and leadership academies as a service for interested local officials and others. Please let us know if information here is out of date or if there is a source we should add. Contact the Public Engagement Program at email@example.com.
The following stories describe successful efforts by California cities and counties to inform residents about local government and civics, develop community leadership, and create effective citizen academies.
Although the Institute endeavors to help local officials understand technical and legal concepts that apply to their public service, these materials are not technical or legal advice. Officials are encouraged to consult technical experts, attorneys and/or relevant regulatory authorities for up-to-date information and advice on specific situations.
