FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: March 21, 2018
Don’t just be curious about how your Kansas City government works. Enroll today in the City’s free, eight-week program designed to connect residents with a government that wants to build a better Kansas City.
The Community Engagement University is accepting applicants for spring 2018 but seats are limited. If you’re one of the lucky 30 selected, you’ll be able to interact with staffers who know the ins and outs of City finances, operations, projects and services.
Graduates typically leave better equipped to serve as role models for community and neighborhood groups and are generally inspired to help improve the quality of life for other Kansas City residents.
The sessions start April 3 and run from 6-8:15 p.m. Participants must reside in Kansas City, Missouri, and be at least 18 years old. The Tuesday sessions will cover basic knowledge of the City’s functions and operations.
Additionally, participants may sign up for optional tours of City facilities. This information will be shared during the first session. Participation in all eight sessions is encouraged, but you’ll need to attend seven of the eight sessions to graduate with a certification.
