LEAD Goleta Community Academy

Find out what happens at City Hall with City of Goleta’s community academy, LEAD Goleta. LEAD stands for Learn, Empower, Advocate and Discuss. This free, interactive and eye-opening six week program is designed to help community members better understand the role that local government plays so that they can effectively participate, share that knowledge with others and possibly even consider a future role in city governance.

The upcoming LEAD Goleta Community Academy will run for six consecutive weeks every Wednesday evening from 6:00 – 8:00 p.m. starting on January 8, 2020 and ending on February 12, 2020 with a celebratory graduation ceremony.  Most classes will be held at City Hall Council Chambers located at 130 Cremona Drive, Suite B, but some may be held out in the community.

Each class will be interactive and feature different key City departments giving a behind the scenes view of how the City of Goleta is run.  Attendees will learn everything from how roads are maintained to what goes in to creating the City’s budget. Throughout the program, participants will be exposed to the role of local government.
