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 students a behind-the-scenes look at City services and programs. 

2018 update

Due to changes in staff teams and our focus on the mayoral directives, we are putting the program on hold for 2018 as we won’t be able to give the course the attention that it deserves this year. We are committed to offering the program again as it was such a success and is a true benefit to the community. We plan to host the course again next year.

We have many other ways to get involved with the City: www.everettwa.gov/engage. You can also reach out to Special Projects Manager Julie Frauenholtz, who is overseeing our Community Engagement and Inclusion directive, for information on other ways to get connected to the City.

Congratulations Class of 2017!


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