Go Behind the Scenes of City Government at Next Over 50 Citizen's Academy

Applications are now being accepted through February 26 for the next class of the City of Bowling Green's Over 50 Citizen's Academy. The academy takes place over four and a half days in March and is offered at no cost to participants.

Part of the Age Friendly Bowling Green initiative and a partnership with AARP Kentucky, the academy provides a "behind the scenes" look at local government, including its budget, programs and services, as well as community resources and volunteer opportunities for older adults. The academy also explores livability and what it means to be an "Age Friendly" community. 

The academy will begin Monday, March 4 and conclude with a graduation lunch on Friday, March 8. Each day begins at 9:00 and concludes by 4:00 p.m., with lunch and snacks provided. 

It is one of three citizen academies that are launching soon: The Academy For New Americans has completed registration and will begin its first session on Thursday, Feb. 29. Bowling Green Police will holds its spring Citizens Police Academy, which begins on Tuesday, March 5.
