Citizen's Academy

WELCOME to the Citizen's Academy Program!

2019 Registration has closed.

The Citizen’s Academy is a fun, highly-interactive program with the goal of connecting the City staff and elected officials with the citizens and demonstrating what it takes to run the City via a hands-on approach. Each week highlights a different City department: police tactics via a “shoot/don’t shoot” scenario with the Police Department, experience a day in the life of a firefighter while wearing all the necessary gear and performing fire mitigation procedures, tour our City water infrastructure and electric substations, and many more exciting activities throughout the program. The goal of the Citizen’s Academy is to cultivate new community leaders and to leave a lasting, positive impression with the residents.

We are encouraging any City of Fountain or Security-Widefield resident over the age 16 to sign up now, as we have limited space available. The program begins August 29th to Nov. 12th on Thursdays from 6:00-9:00pm. To apply for the Citizen’s Academy please fill out the registration form below and submit it via email or hard copy to the City. 

Questions regarding the Citizen’s Academy may be directed to Corbin Hart, Economic Development Specialist, or (719) 393-4928.
