Nevada County offers a Citizen’s Academy, which aims to acquaint the community with the various functions and services of County government. Citizen’s Academy is a ten week class, covering topics from Information Technology to Public Safety, that provides its participants with insight on local Government operations and the diverse services that help support a healthy, safe and vibrant community.

Class Details

The class takes place on consecutive Monday evenings (excluding holidays) in the fall. There is no cost to participate, and a simple meal is provided at each session.
