Thinking of running for office? Looking to better connect with your community? If you’ve ever wondered who decides what businesses come to town, where City funding comes from, or how to present an idea to the City Council, then the academy is for you!
Designed to offer a first-hand look at City operations and services, the Palmdale Partners Academy is a great way to connect. Recent graduates said:
"I feel connected in a way that makes me a better citizen, neighbor and friend."
"My husband and I were new to Palmdale and registered for the Palmdale Partners Academy to learn about the City's operations. What we got was so much more."
"A unique opportunity to learn and observe how the City provides services for all of its citizens; and the dedication of the people who do the work. If you care about how your community works, it’s worth your time."
Registration is closed for the 2019 session of the Palmdale Partners Academy. To register for future sessions visit the Partners Academy page or call 661-267-5400.
Community Service Events
The City hosts service days and service hour opportunities each year to allow residents to engage in their neighborhoods and community. Participants find that working alongside friends and neighbors builds community and ownership.
