The City of Duluth is an ideal suburban environment that offers a great place to live, work and play. We are excited to offer an avenue for citizens to become knowledgeable about City operations, services, and the overall essential functions of City government. This will be accomplished by offering an interactive learning experience, which will include information about City services, programs and responsibilities. Additionally, citizens will casually interact with elected officials and city staff. Class participants will be afforded the opportunity to ask questions and gain a better understanding of Duluth government and their role in local government.
The leadership program will encourage citizens to become engaged in government operations and participate by serving on various boards and committees and exploring other opportunities in the community and in the City to become involved. Citizens will be empowered to create insightful solutions to important community issues and needs. In addition, the program will spark interest in local issues, present information about important questions facing the City, provide an avenue for residents to help plan the community’s future, and give citizens hands-on experience in City government operations. This program will be offered each winter and consists of nine (9) evening sessions.
