Everett Essentials

Everett Essentials is the City’s civic academy course. This program is an opportunity for community members to learn how our City functions and how to become further involved in local government. Everett Essentials is designed to offer participants a behind-the-scenes look at City services and programs.

Applications are now closed for Everett Essentials 2020!

Thanks for your interest in Everett Essentials.  We are pleased to have gotten so many applications and are reviewing them now. Selected applicants will be contacted by Feb. 7.

The 10-session course includes City department tours and in-depth, hands-on learning about City services and operations. Seven sessions will occur on Monday evenings, with three Saturday sessions. The course starts on Feb. 29, 2020 and will wrap up in on May 11, 2020. 

If volunteering with the City of Everett is of interest to you, we have many other ways to get involved with the City: www.everettwa.gov/engage

Congratulations Class of 2017!

The inaugural Everett Essentials Class of 2017 was a great success. Students found that the class fulfilled their original reasons for applying and many of them have become more involved with the City and become active leaders in their community.
