Civic Academy

Civic Academy is an opportunity for the youth of Evanston to engage with their local government. Before each City Council meeting, Mayor Hagerty will invite a group of Evanston youth from various organizations around Evanston to learn more about government in Evanston. The students are invited to arrive at the Civic Center 30 minutes early to meet with Steve and learn more about how the Council operates and what they do. These students are then invited to sit in on the City Council meeting and to speak about issues important to them. If you work with a group of students who would like to participate in Civic Academy, please email Caroline Brown at
