Sign up for Pittsburgh's Leadership Academy


February 6, 2018

The City of Pittsburgh is again offering its Civic Leadership Academy, a free, 11-week course that encourages more informed, effective and inspired community and civic leadership by giving city residents an opportunity to learn about their local government.

The Civic Leadership Academy is held twice per year and applications are open to anyone who lives in, or owns and operates a business, within the City of Pittsburgh limits. Each class meets with more than 15 departments, offices, bureaus and authorities of the City of Pittsburgh to learn about their operations, programs and services.

The academy in partnership with Welcoming Pittsburgh reserves 10 spots for New Americans and recent immigrants living in Pittsburgh. Not only will participants have a opportunity to understand the inner workings of local government, but they will also benefit from a cross-cultural exchange.

Individuals actively involved in community organizations are encouraged to apply.

Academy classes are held in various locations. Some are held in City of Pittsburgh office buildings Downtown and some are held on-site at facilities around the city, such as the Pittsburgh Bureau of Police Headquarters, Public Safety Training Facility, Pittsburgh Water and Sewer Water Treatment Plant and park facilities.

For more details, contact Molly Onufer, CLA coordinator, by calling 412-255-2217 or email
