Boards & Commissions Workshops

We believe in the power of participatory government! The people of Bridgeport hold the power to make the change we wish to see in our city. We strive to create opportunities for our youth and residents in Bridgeport to be part of the decision-making, to have a seat at the table.

PURPOSE: The Boards & Commissions Workshop educates us, the Bridgeport residents, on our City of Bridgeport’s Boards & Commissions, including the purpose, process, and best practices. Support is on site to assist participants in completing and submitting applications to serve on a Board at the workshop. Residents leave the workshop inspired, with an enhanced understanding of our democratic system and the value of community and civic engagement. Engaging young people between ages 18-24 is a priority!

STRUCTURE: One Workshop per month, 10 months per year, starting January 2019. The Workshop travels to all City Council districts. All workshops will be free and open to the public!
