Do you love Hillsboro and care about your community? Are you interested in giving back to the community and building leadership skills?

You’re invited to join Hillsboro’s Civic Leadership Academy! At the Academy, Hillsboro residents from all neighborhoods and backgrounds come together to research a topic of community importance, share their perspectives, and make recommendations to City Council. Last year’s Academy addressed the topic of how to foster a greater sense of community in Hillsboro. 

Participants meet once a week for six weeks to discuss and research a community-focused topic, and learn about civic leadership and local government. Many go on to serve on City Boards and Commissions.
