A lot has happened since the Citizens’ Academy…
…It might be time for a refresher
You asked for it, so we’re opening up 5 spots in this Fall’s Academy for alumni to audit! A lot has changed since our first Citizens’ Academy in 2007, and a surprising amount has changed just in the past couple years. Come join us this Fall to learn the latest about public transit and mobility in the Denver Metro region!
APPLICATIONS ARE DUE ON FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 8 BY 5PM.
This Fall we are excited to open up 5 spots in our Fall Academy for alumni who wish to audit the course and re-up their transit education. Academy alumni are NOT required to submit and present an Action Plan, though they may choose to do so if they like. Alumni are asked to commit to attend all 7-weeks of the Academy.
Regular applications open: June 1
Alumni applications open: August 21
Application deadline: September 8, 5pm
Invitations extended to join Fall 2017: September 12
Deadline to accept spot/scholarship: September 19
The Academy is held every Tuesday night, 6-9pm from September 26-November 14 (Class will not be held on Halloween, 10/31). Unless specified otherwise, all classes are held at the Denver Metro Chamber of Commerce, 1445 Market Street, Denver 80202.
Dates: September 26, October 3, October 10, October 17, October 24, November 7, November 14
Tuition for the 2017 Alumni Audit is $500.
Transit Alliance began charging tuition for the Academy in Spring 2017 to help cover costs of the program. For the 2017 Spring Academy, Transit Alliance was able to meet 100% of applicants’ need for scholarships, and in order to meet the need of the Fall 2017 class, scholarships are being reserved for first-time applicants to the Academy. If you have extenuating financial circumstances and still wish to participate in the alumni audit, please email Jamie at firstname.lastname@example.org
The full cost of the Academy is $1,000 per participant for our 7-week program. Your partial tuition helps offset Transit Alliance’s out-of-pocket costs for the Citizens’ Academy. The Academy includes seven sessions with the region’s top presenters, field trip, dinner, and all training materials.
