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. By experiencing several County businesses and agencies, students can appreciate how Broward County government makes a difference in the quality of life in our community. The curriculum incorporates a civics component so students understand their role and responsibilities as citizens. Dinner is included in the program.

Learn more about the Broward Academy curriculum, destinations, and eligibility requirements by visiting Broward.org/Academy. Be sure to complete an application.  The deadline for consideration is July 27, 2018.
