Learn About Local Government

The Government Citizens Academy (GCA) allows Hopewell residents to learn about their local government through interactive sessions and optional tours of facilities. Participants receive a comprehensive look at the how and the why of local government programs. GCA sessions offer an opportunity for participants to learn directly from department leaders, as well as offer feedback. 

GCA is intended for a diverse audience, so it's for you, regardless of if you are a curious high school student, a new business owner, a prospective homeowner looking to move into the community, a resident looking for volunteer opportunities, a resident of the community for 30 years, or any other member of the Hopewell community.
