The Academy for New Americans is a free leadership-training program sponsored by the City of Bowling Green that empowers New Americans to understand and participate in City Government. The purpose of the program is to provide New Americans the tools necessary to successfully navigate City services, community information and resources in order to become key stakeholders in assisting their respective ethnic communities and neighborhoods.

The Academy for New Americans is led by the International Communities Liaison Division (ICL) in the Department of Neighborhood and Community Services.  The Academy consists of day long sessions held once a month, on the fourth Thursday of every month, ending with a graduation after the last session of the Academy in June.
