***Sponsored Workshops
Sponsored workshops are FREE and open to the public. Registration is required as seating is limited. Some classes are available in person versus virtual. Please double check your date.

 

Cancelation of Sponsored Workshops
There may be times when unforeseen circumstances arise and households cannot attend a workshop. In this event, a service fee of $20 will be required if a household needs to cancel an existing registration for a FREE (sponsored) workshop and move it to another FREE (sponsored) workshop date.  A minimum 5 day notice is required so we can reallocate your place to another household.   Also note, registration for a new workshop is not guaranteed and is subject to availability of space.

 

If a less than 5-day notice is provided, households will be subject to a $40 registration fee (per household) for any subsequent workshops they are registered to attend (even if the workshop is offered at no cost).   A full payment of the service fee or registration fee MUST be made to Model Cities upon completion of the workshop by the household and before a Certificate of Completion can be provided.
