Participants will learn about DeSoto's history, tour City facilities, get a behind-the-scenes look at each department and the services offered, and experience first-hand the equipment used to provide these services. The Civic Academy also affords the opportunity to meet department heads one-on-one.
Any DeSoto resident, 16 or older, willing to commit the time necessary to complete this informative, interesting, and intense program is eligible to participate. The sessions are FREE and include all supplies and dinner for participants. The sessions will be held on eleven consecutive Thursday evenings from 5:45 pm to 8:30 pm beginning August 16, 2018. DeSoto Juniors and Seniors who complete the Junior Civic Academy which runs concurrently with the regular program, are eligible for summer internships with the City of DeSoto in 2019.
