City of Aspen Citizen Academy Now Accepting Applications

The class curriculum is flexible to meet the public health orders of Pitkin County and sessions will meet in-person or online or a combination of both.

The first class is on September 17 from 5:30 – 7:30 p.m.  The Academy runs through November 12 with classes scheduled every other week.   Aspen residents will be offered participation first, but you do not have to be a City resident to participate.  To apply and learn more go to: Deadline to apply is Friday, July 31.
