Clark County’s Neighborhood College is seeking residents interested in learning how County government works to better serve their neighborhoods and the community.
Neighborhood College is a free, ten-week program of interactive workshops and hands-on learning experiences conducted for Clark County residents by subject matter experts from various County departments. Session topics will include, but are not limited to, Government 101, transportation, health, human and community services, public and neighborhood safety, public works, civic engagement and code enforcement.
The class starts on March 21 and will meet from 6 to 9 p.m. Mondays for ten weeks. Each night will begin with an informal “Power Hour” from 5 to 6 p.m. for networking. The classes will be held in the Pueblo Room on the first floor of the County Government Center at 500 S. Grand Central Parkway.
“The County’s Neighborhood College program is a great way for residents to learn more about the inner workings of the County government and the issues we deal with every day,” Commission Chairman Steve Sisolak said. “I encourage anyone interested in learning about government to apply.”
Applications are due by 5 p.m. on Wednesday, Feb. 24. Class size is limited to 28 students, so interested citizens are encouraged to apply soon.
