About the Ann Arbor Citizens Academy

With the success of the Ann Arbor Citizens Police, Fire, and Courts Academy, City staff decided to launch the Ann Arbor Citizens Academy (A2CA) as a sister academy to provide a broader view of local government for Ann Arbor residents.

During a series of weekly sessions, participants connect with City staff and elected officials in order to discover what goes into both long term planning and day-to-day operations throughout Ann Arbor. City staff hopes participants will be motivated to play a more active role in shaping the future of Ann Arbor, after participating in A2CA tours, presentations, and interactive activities designed to deepen the understanding of governmental functions and services.
