The Glynn County Citizen's Academy is a free 8-week civics class that encourages participants to "Get to know Glynn County." Each week includes an inside look at county government departments, what each does, and how they serve Glynn County citizens. Classes will include, speakers, exercises and tours in order to give students the best understanding of day to day operations. Students will be encouraged to ask questions or offer ideas throughout the classes.

Classes are to begin on February 7, 2019 at 5:00 p.m. in the second floor meeting room of the Historic Courthouse and continue once a week for 8 weeks. Most classes will be 2-3 hours long and will take place in the evening hours after 5:00 p.m., so that many citizens may attend. 

Applications for 2020 will open in December 2019.
