Applications are being accepted for a 10-week course from Santa Clara County that teaches its students about the roles and responsibilities of county government.
"This is a great opportunity for people of any age, interested in local government, to gain firsthand knowledge of the inner workings of our County," Simitian said in a statement.
Most sessions will occur on Tuesday evenings from 6-9 p.m., and one half-day session will take place on a Saturday. A graduation ceremony will be held at the end of the Academy during a Board of Supervisors meeting.
There is a $30 materials fee, which can be waived in cases of financial hardship. For more information or to obtain an application, contact the Office of Public Affairs at SCCPublicAffairs@ceo.sccgov.org or call 408-299-5151.
