Neighborhood Academy


Neighborhood Academy is a nine-month program for City of Jackson residents. Each monthly meeting will focus on different areas of local government and how residents can participate in city processes. It will serve as a way to build trust and empower residents to influence city decisions, programs, and policies. By the end, new neighborhood champions across the city will know how to effect change.


Neighborhood Academy will begin in September. Meetings will be held monthly for two-hour sessions until May when we will hold the closing session and graduation.

The meetings will be held on Thursdays; the preference of the majority of our applicants will determine the time. A tentative schedule is below. Applicants must attend seven of the nine sessions to complete the program.
