The goal of this program is to educate the participants about each department and ultimately come away with a holistic understanding of all of county government operations.

Starting January 7, the weekly program will take place on Monday nights from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. 

There will be a graduation ceremony for all the participants who conclude the nine-week program. Those interested in attending should go to BooneCountyKY.org to fill out the online application.

The deadline to sign up is December 26, 2018.

Participant requirements to be considered: 18 years or older, a valid driver’s license or reliable transportation, a resident of Boone County or a business owner.
