Mayor Hicks-Hudson Launches Engage Toledo Ambassador Academy

Mayor Hicks-Hudson last week announced the creation of an exciting new initiative to inspire civic engagement and participation called the Engage Toledo Ambassador Academy. Participants will interact with city leaders who will provide “behind-the-scenes” perspectives on how Toledo is enhancing service delivery systems for residents and businesses through technology and best management practices. 

The announcement was made at the Sanger Branch Library as part of Customer Service Week. “Toledo is nationally-recognized as a Citizen-Engaged Community, and for good reason,” said Mayor Hicks-Hudson in opening remarks, “Since its start in October of 2015, citizens have used the Engage Toledo system more than 75,000 times. The Engage Toledo Ambassador Academy will take this citizen engagement to a new level.”

An inaugural class of approximately 25 citizens will be selected to attend this free course on Wednesday evenings from 6 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. at various locations throughout the city, starting October 18 and culminating in a graduation ceremony on December 13. 

Participants must be Toledo residents at least 18 years of age.  Applications are being accepted through October 16 on a first-come, first-served basis, with some exceptions possible to ensure broad representation across the city.  More information and applications are available online at www.toledo.oh.gov/engage-toledo  and at the DPU Customer Walk-In Center at 420 Madison Avenue.
