South Florida College Students: Apply to Broward Academy VII


BROWARD COUNTY - South Florida college students who want to go behind the scenes to experience how government really works can now apply to Broward Academy VII. The theme of this free 10-week program (September 13-November 15, Thursday evenings) is Passport to Broward.  Participants will be taken to County destinations where the public typically does not have access.

At the start of the program, students will be given a Broward passport which will be stamped at each of the 10 special destinations visited over the course of study.
