MONTGOMERY COUNTY, Va. (WDBJ) - Registration is open for the upcoming Citizens Academy in Montgomery County.

It’s in partnership between the Town of Christiansburg and Montgomery County.

Participants will get hands-on experience seeing how different government functions operate.

The class is offered over eight weeks and takes place every Wednesday from 6 p.m. until 8 p.m.

“An aspect that’s really important to us in planning Citizens Academy is making sure that all the areas have some sort of hands-on component, so we’re really excited for citizens to be able to come and not just learn and listen, but to be able to actually get involved,” said a town spokesperson.

The program is free and the deadline to apply is August 15. The Citizens Academy will start September 7. Click here to apply.
