Over 50 Citizen’s Academy

Are you Over 50? Are you interested in Bowling Green? Do you want to know more about your City’s form of government? Then the 6th Annual Over Fifty Citizen’s Academy is perfect for you!  The Academy will be held weekdays, Thursday, March 1st through Wednesday, March 7th, 2018, for Bowling Green City residents age 50 and older.

A portion of the sessions will include bus transportation and very light walking, with accommodations as needed. The Academy is provided at no cost to participants. The participant is expected to attend each session throughout the five days. Applicants are chosen solely on a first come, first serve basis, using receipt of application to determine order.

Throughout this five-day course you will learn how we pay for City government, gather information about aging resources and services, be introduced to all of our City departments, find out about transportation needs and planning, and so much more.

For more information or to apply, please visit:   http://www.bgky.org/ncs/over-fifty-citizens-academy or contact Karen Foley at 270-393-3674. Application deadline is February 15, 2018.

Previous Over Fifty Academies have been a huge success with attendees providing the following feedback to City staff on evaluation forms:

  • “After living here since the mid-70s it was extremely informative and educational to be exposed to all of the key areas of our city.  I thoroughly enjoyed all of the presentations and tours and feel a much greater sense of appreciation for our City employees.”
  • “I felt every presenter was excellent.  They really showed how much B.G. city government cares about the citizens and each showed great pride in their department and the work they do.”
  • “Loved, loved, loved this program!  It so opened my eyes to what makes BG run.  I had no idea.  Thank you so very much for all your efforts pulling this together!!”
  • “I have really enjoyed this.  This is the best learning experience I have attended.”

If you think this week-long Academy may be something you are interested in, please don’t hesitate to contact the City or apply online. Space is limited and we’re looking forward to another great program in 2018!!
