The Citizen Public Works Academy provides an opportunity for citizens to learn firsthand about the Department of Public Works. Through a series of lectures, demonstrations, hands-on activities and field trips, citizens are given an inside look of day-to-day public works operations.
The academy runs for 10 weeks with most classes held between 6:00 PM and 8:00 PM on Thursday nights. The upcoming CPWA class will be in the Fall of 2021.
Unless otherwise noted, classes are held at the Public Works Operations building located at:
513 Oyster Point Road
Newport News, Virginia 23602
Applicants must be at least 18 years of age and a Newport News resident.
We are now accepting applications for the next class. You may download an application. Completed applications can be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org. In addition, applications are available at the Public Works Operations building at: 513 Oyster Point Road, Newport News, Virginia 23602.
