Applications open for 2022 Your Town Academy

Your Town Academy with icons for each department

Have fun, and learn more about the Town you call home, at Your Town Academy – an eight-week class designed to provide Castle Rock residents and business owners with greater knowledge of their Town government.

Applications are being accepted starting today at CRgov.com/YTA. The application period is expected to close July 1, but it could end earlier if the class becomes full, as spaces are limited; don’t wait if you are interested in learning more about how #WeWorkForYou.

“Anyone who genuinely wants to be educated on how the town of Castle Rock is run, Your Town Academy is the best beginning spot,” commented a 2021 graduate. “Learn about the town and start to formulate your plan to participate and contribute.”

During the academy, each of the Town’s major departments – Development Services, Finance, Fire, Parks and Recreation, Police, Public Works/Roads and Water – will host an evening of information and interactive demonstrations regarding their services. The remaining two classes will contain information about the Town’s history, structure, funding and general services. A detailed course outline is available online.

The program will run from 6 to 8:30 p.m. on eight Mondays between Aug. 15 and Oct. 10. A graduation ceremony is expected to be held during the Oct. 18 Town Council meeting.

The class is free to adults ages 18 and up. Participants must complete at least six of the eight classes to receive a Certificate of Completion.

The class size will be capped at 30 participants. Preference for enrollment will be given first to Town residents and business owners. The class will then be filled first come, first served. Those accepted into the class will be notified in July.
