Will you join the next class of Civics 101?


Town of Davidson Launches Civics 101 Class Registration

Class will run late February through mid-May

Are you interested in learning more about the Town of Davidson and how your local government operates? Please consider registering for the town’s Civics 101 program! This free course is open to people who live or work in Davidson (within the town limits or within the extra-territorial jurisdiction) and who are 18 and older and who have not taken the class previously.

Civics 101 is a fun, free, 10-week course with active discussion, facility and town tours, and the chance to get an inside look at how local government works in Davidson. This year, we’re revamping the program to offer even more great content about the work we’re doing on our Strategic Plan and other important initiatives! We’ll be launching this spring with a tour of the new Town Hall and Community Center, a tour of the whole town with our Town Manager, and a fun meet and greet kick-off event where you can meet participants from both classes!

“We are thrilled to have the opportunity to invite residents to the new Town Hall and Community Center and offer Civics 101 again. It’s a fantastic program that allows for great interaction between community members and town staff,” said Town Manager Jamie Justice. “We’ll be back this year with a fresh perspective and can’t wait to engage with program participants in this unique and worthwhile course.”
