Citizens' Academy


The City of Bethlehem is proud to extend to its residents an invitation to attend the CITIZENS’ ACADEMY.

The CITIZENS’ ACADEMY offers City residents who are interested in becoming more involved in local government and its activities, the opportunity to learn about what city government does, and offers direct insight to the various city operations.

The program seeks to increase transparency in the way the City operates, while at the same time, begin to develop closer relationships between the City of Bethlehem residents and City Hall, through mutual understanding and cooperation.

Together we can expand the city’s volunteer capacity to build a new generation of leaders in Bethlehem.

Participants enrolled in the Citizens’ Academy will attend one, two-hour session per week, for 11 weeks. During each session, participants will view in-depth presentations and demonstrations of the inner workings of local government. Classes for the 2013 session will begin on Wednesday, April 3, 2013 and presentations will take place at various working locations within the City. The program is limited to 25-persons per session.
