Learn about Clearwater Government from the Inside Out
The Clearwater Citizens Academy is designed for residents interested in learning how the city operates.
CLEARWATER – Applications are being accepted for the 16th annual Citizens Academy, Clearwater 101, a 10-week program providing citizens with a hands-on learning experience about the people, equipment and infrastructure it takes to run Pinellas County’s second-largest city.
The classes will be from 6 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. Tuesdays beginning Sept. 5. Graduation will be Nov. 16.
This interactive program is an educational experience for Clearwater residents interested in civic affairs.

Participants must attend at least eight of the ten sessions in order to graduate at the City Council meeting on Thursday, Nov. 16.
A selection committee will choose 20 participants from the applications received. The committee will judge applications based on responses to questions while ensuring that the class reflects the diversity of the Clearwater community, with representatives from different neighborhoods and sections of the city.
