The City of New Haven’s Democracy School introduces residents to the structures, services, and leaders in city government through a series of presentations and question and answer sessions. Meeting Thursday nights for two months in the fall, Democracy School surveys departments and volunteer opportunities across city government, with a goal of equipping residents with tools to advocate for and in their community. Democracy School is open to any New Haven resident, at least 18 years old. Because space is limited, 25 students have typically been accepted, based on submitted applications.
To apply, fill out this application by Friday, September 14th.
