Downtown Academy is essentially a 10-month “class” on downtown Fresno that is offered to members of Fresno’s Leading Young Professionals (FLYP). The class meets one evening each month, taking tours of downtown projects and hearing from community leaders about obstacles and opportunities in our city center.
We visit cool places, eat great food, and make great connections.
What are the 4 pillars of Downtown Academy?
A class curriculum that explores the complexities of urban renewal
An overnight field trip to other cities to help visualize successful revitalization strategies
Completion of a class project that directly advances revitalization efforts
Become a downtown champion, and member of a tight-knit group that supports vibrancy, innovation, advocacy, and partnerships in our downtown!
