Apply for City Government Academy

Post Date:01/06/2020

City Government Academy logoThe City is accepting applications for an engaging program where residents can learn about how municipal government works in Eden Prairie.

City Government Academy is a free, six-week program offering residents a behind-the-scenes look at how their City operates. Each week, a different department is spotlighted while participants tour facilities, meet City staff and learn about what it takes to provide the services and amenities we all enjoy in Eden Prairie.

Eden Prairie residents over the age of 18 are eligible to participate. Prior to acceptance into the program, applicants are required to undergo a criminal history check. Due to limited space, participants are accepted via a lottery system.

The City Government Academy runs Wednesday, April 22 through Wednesday, May 27, culminating with a graduation ceremony at the Tuesday, June 16 City Council meeting.

Visit for more details and the application. The deadline to apply is Friday, March 6, 2020.
