Get an Inside Look at Casa Grande through the 2019 Leadership Academy

The City of Casa Grande is accepting applications for its 2019 Leadership Academy. The Leadership Academy is a free eight-week program designed to educate citizens on how their local government works.

Offered by the City since 2003, the Academy provides a behind-the-scenes look at what it takes to keep Casa Grande running. Each week, participants learn about a different facet of City operations through presentations and tours by department directors and elected officials.

The Leadership Academy is limited to 25 participants. All participants must be 18 years of age or older and reside in Casa Grande. The City of Casa Grande partners with the Arizona Public Service Company (APS) to sponsor this program, and program graduates frequently go on to engage with the local community by running for office or volunteering for city boards and commissions.
