Citizens Academy

City of Homer Alaska Official Website

The City of Homer is currently putting on the first City of Homer Citizens Academy. Registration for the 2014 Academy is closed, however if you have an interest in participating in a future Academy, please email 

The Academy consists of 6 classes every Thursday from February 20 through March 27, culminating in a certification ceremony at City Council on April 14.

The goal of the Citizens Academy is to increase and develop citizen's knowledge of how the City operates. Citizens will learn the complexities involved with running a municipality to help them imagine the potential of Homer and encourage them to assume leadership roles in the community. 

More information on the Academy can be found below. Participation is limited to 15. Register early if you are interested, seats will be reserved on a first come first serve basis with priority given to City residents.
