Duluth accepting applications for the 11th Annual L.E.A.D. Academy

Citizens engage when they are armed with good information and Duluth’s L.E.A.D. (Learn, Engage, Advance Duluth) Academy provides that foundation. Participants are empowered to help address community issues because they understand all the possible ways to help. The program will spark interest in local issues, provide insight into the decision making process and provide an avenue for participants to help advance the community to a better future.

The eleventh installment of Duluth’s L.E.A.D. Academy is set to begin 6 to 9 p.m. Feb. 5 and will consist of 8 Tuesday evening sessions at City Hall, 3167 Main St. There will be one Monday evening session on Feb. 25 when the class will join the City Council for the regularly scheduled work session at 5:30 pm. Note that light dinner/snacks are provided each week.

Deadline for applications is Jan. 18. Information and applications: www.duluthga.net/lead.
