Sign Up for the Youth Citizens Academy!

Just because school is out doesn’t mean the learning stops!

The City of Southlake launched the Youth Citizens Academy to teach 9 – 11-year-olds how the City of Southlake works for the benefit of those who live, work and play in Southlake. Youth citizens complete weekly objectives for five weeks to get an inside look at the City and earn a certificate, challenge coin and recognition as a Southlake Youth Citizen!

The virtual Academy starts June 28!

Videos and activities will be sent by email each week. Youth Citizens have one week to complete the objectives and submit documentation of completion by email. Ten objectives must be completed to graduate from the academy. Bonus objectives will be launched during the academy just in case you miss one. Many of the objectives will require help from an adult to go to Southlake landmarks, make an emergency plan for the family, plan a city, budget, or write an essay. All of the activities can be completed as a family!

The deadline to enroll is Friday, June 25.

Enroll your 3rd or 4th grader in the City of Southlake Youth Citizens Academy. For more information, email
