Spring session begins May 1 

Chesterfield County is offering a hands-on approach to citizens to learn about local government and tour county facilities. Registration is open or the Government Citizens Academy, with the spring academy beginning May 1. 

The Government citizens Academy, which is free to participants, is an opportunity for the public to learn about the county, meet local government leaders, and offer feedback about county services and programs. 

"Providing citizens a comprehensive at how and why local government services are provided enhances our ability to engage with those who serve," said Susan Pollard, director of the Department of Communications and Media, which is hosting the academy. "by taking participants behind the scenes of their local government, we also aim to gain their perspective on how we're doing today and what our focus should be for tomorrow."

Chesterfield County is offering spring and fall sessions of the Government Citizens Academy. the spring session will be held weeknights one evening per week, starting May 1 and concluding June 27, when the Board of Supervisors will recognize participants. The fall session, set for Aug. 28-OCT. 24, will offer classes during the day. Both sessions provide opportunities for optional tours of additional county facilities and points of interest.

Sessions are scheduled across the county in fire stations, libraries and school facilities, among others. The sessions are a mix of roundtable discussions settings with networking breaks built in.

Anyone can participate in the academy. Register now at www.chesterfield.gov/govacademy.
