Want an insider understanding of city government? Apply to the City Management Academy

The City of Sacramento now is accepting applications for its City Management Academy (CMA), a program to educate and encourage partnerships between the City, its residents and business owners to help maintain, revitalize and promote healthy communities.  

Offered through the Office of Innovation and Economic Development, the academy is a multi-week, instructional course that teaches participants about how the City of Sacramento functions. 

“Through this interactive learning experience, participants can learn from each other and share their mutual commitment to improve the quality of life in Sacramento,” said City Community Engagement Analyst Jessica Davalos-Prieto. 

The Academy will be held in-person  6 – 9 p.m. Wednesdays Sept. 6 through Nov. 1. 

CMA curriculum features guest lectures from elected officials and department staff. Topics range from day-to-day operations to budget development and the public policy process.  

The program will feature more than 20 City departments and divisions with an added civic engagement activity. In addition, the program will have childcare options for children ages 6-17 to make the academy more accessible for families

To be eligible, applicants must reside in the City of Sacramento or own a business in the city. Applicants must also be at least 16 years old. A $50 materials fee will apply to participate in the program. The materials fee can be waived on a case-by-case basis.
