Last night 26 participants in the seventh installment of the Woodbury Community Foundation’s Citizens’ Academy completed their 8-week intensive learning experience about civic engagement in Woodbury.
Supported by the Woodbury Lions (www.woodburylions.org) and in partnership with the City of Woodbury, the 8-week course engages citizens in their community through knowledge and volunteerism.
The Citizens’ Academy develops future leaders who are so important to assuring a strong, robust Woodbury well into the future. It expands the knowledge of our citizens in a way that encourages more involvement in our community. Planned by a team of community members, each weekly session is focused on a different topic: Government; Economic Development; Woodbury History; Culture and Diversity; Public Safety; Media and Communications; City Works; Education; and Volunteerism.
