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
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.

The dates of this training will be June 3rd, 4th, 6th, 8th, 10th, and 11th, and the training will be held via Zoom. We’ll prioritize candidates who are planning to run for office in 2023 and 2024. Tuition for the program is $350 and the application fee is $25. Applications close on May 14th.
