Boot Camps

Designed specially for women who want to run for office this election cycle.

Applications for Emerge’s 2022 Boot Camp are now closed. Please see our States for more information about trainings in your affiliate state.

The boot camps have been developed to give Democratic women the skills they need to turbocharge their campaigns. Top political strategists and trainers will teach attendees critical elements of campaigning, including:

Campaign overview & structure
Developing campaign plan & strategy
Messaging and Media Relations
Social Media
Endorsements & Power Brokers
Fundraising
Field Campaigns
Public Speaking
And much more!

Attendees who complete a boot camp will be considered Emerge boot camp alumnae and have access to alumnae resources, as well as continuing education opportunities for alumnae. Tuition may be paid by personal or campaign committee accounts. Due to campaign finance regulations, Emerge and its affiliates cannot provide scholarships to boot camp participants.
