Neighborhood Involvement


Neighborhood Leadership Academy

The Neighborhood Leadership Academy is a program that gives citizens an opportunity to “get behind the scenes” of the City of Yuma departments and services and learn how a municipality functions.  Class sessions range from Engineering, Finance and Community Development to the Art Center, Fire Station and Public Works with over 30 topics covered in a 15-week session.  A more complete description of the program and this year's schedule is available here along with the 2017 application. You can also view the Neighborhood Leadership Academy video to see the program in action.
