The City Citizen Academy is a free informative, interactive program that looks into the values, philosophy, and operations of the City of Bettendorf. The Academy is designed to give Bettendorf residents an in-depth look at how their City government works. 

The academy will run for eight weeks. Each session will last approximately three hours, 6:00-9:00 p.m. Classes will be held on Thursday nights, except for a scheduled bus tour. We would like the participants to attend every session but understand this is not always possible. We do ask that participants not miss more than two sessions. 
During the academy, participants may be asked to climb stairs, take part in walking tours, and sit for an extended period of time. You must be at least 18 years of age and be a resident of the City of Bettendorf. The academy is not intended for children.
