Apply for CORE Community by Feb. 22
Each week, the City of Roswell Education and Engagement (CORE) Community program will highlight the work of one of the City’s departments or service areas with the goal of familiarizing participants with their city government’s policies, processes, goals, challenges, and activities—and, most importantly, its people.
“Not only do we want to help bring awareness and understanding of the City’s day-to-day work through this program, but we hope the program’s personal interaction among participants and staff helps inspire meaningful relationships, engagement, and collaboration within our community,” said Gary Palmer, City Administrator.
The classes will be held in the evening, from 6:00 to 9:00 p.m., with the exception of the final morning session. Dinner will be provided for participants.
