The following is a press release
The Framingham Government Academy (FGA) is a series of educational and interactive workshops to educate residents about municipal functions to increase their understanding of the community.
Sessions are hosted at various locations around the city to give participants a chance to explore City facilities.
Participants have the opportunity to learn directly from City leaders about the functions of each division, with the goal being that when they complete the academy, they better understand the functions of the municipality. With this knowledge, participants will be better equipped to advance their neighborhoods and improve quality of life, be prepared to serve on boards and commissions, and engage in decision- making processes.
FGA Spring session will begin on Wednesday, March 25, and end May 27. Classes meet on Wednesday evenings from 6:30–8:30 p.m. on various dates in March, April, and May.
Residents interested in participating must apply and commit to attending all sessions.
