Citizen’s Academy provides insight into City government

Mon, 11/19/2018 - 16:30

The City of Winchester is now accepting registrations for the 14th annual INSIGHT Citizen's Academy. Since 2004, INSIGHT has provided the community an opportunity to discover their city through interactive, hands-on activities and to gain exposure to the wide range of government services, programs, functions and challenges. Approximately 350 people have graduated from the program and many have gone on to serve on Winchester boards and City Council.

At every session, discuss the City’s past, present and future with department leaders or elected officials. Get to know the people that make the daily decisions and find out how and, most importantly, why decisions are made. Government functions can be complicated if you don’t have the opportunity to be a part of the day-to-day operations. Now you can get inside, get explanations, meet local officials and gain a new insight into your local government. But this program offers more than an opportunity to learn about local government operations.  As one INSIGHT graduate stated: “This program was one of the highlights of my life in Winchester.”  You’ll be amazed by all that you discover, the people you’ll meet, and the memories you’ll make during this fun, interactive program.
