[ARCHIVED] Register Online for the Key West Ambassadors Class 38

City Seal

Where do tax dollars go once you've paid them?  How does such a small island handle its wastewater and stormwater while protecting nearshore waters?  What do school resource officers do?  The answers are just some knowledge you'll gain as a Key West Ambassador.

There is no better way to get to know city government than through the Key West Ambassadors Academy.  Registration begins tomorrow for Class 38 of the Academy.  Applications are available only through the City's website; click here to apply. 

The weekly classes begin on January 11, 2023, and wrap up on March 29, 2023.  The class meets every Wednesday from 1 PM to 3 PM, usually at the City Hall, 1300 White Street.  There are many field trips involved in the sessions as well.

The Ambassadors program was first convened in 2003.  Originally sponsored by the city manager.  Volunteer ambassadors now help coordinate the 13-week program.  During the weekly sessions, representatives of various City departments meet with the group to give an in-depth understanding of the workings of City government.

The program graduates look like a who's who of Key West, including city and county commissioners, CEOs, and directors of several not-for-profit organizations.  The Ambassadors program works under the concept that an educated citizenry is the bedrock of a well-functioning democracy.
