Neighborhood Involvement


Neighborhood Leadership Academy

The Neighborhood Leadership Academy (NLA) 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 upcoming program and schedule is available here. You can also view the Neighborhood Leadership Academy video to see the program in action.
