Emerge National Candidate Boot Camp

2018 was a historic year for women in politics. And while some are already getting excited about 2020, we at Emerge know that there is much work that needs to be done now.

For the first time, we are offering our three-day, candidate-specific training to Democratic women across the country. Whether you are running for school board or U.S. Congress, you are encouraged to apply to this rigorous and effective program.

Alumnae of our boot camp program have gone on to serve as congresswomen, secretaries of state, district attorneys, state senators, state representatives, city councilors and school board members amongst others.

We bring in top-notch trainers and experts ranging from labor leaders, top-tier campaign managers and elected officials to cover the the ins and outs of campaigns, including:

  • Campaign Planning and Strategy
  • Messaging and Media
  • Fundraising and Budget
  • Field Campaigns
  • Public Speaking
  • Endorsements
  • And More!

Once you complete this training program, you will considered an Emerge alumna and be a member of our 4,000 member strong Emerge alumnae network.

This program is specifically for Democratic women who are actively planning to run for public office within the next two-three years. Women running at any level and from across the country are encouraged to apply. Based on your home state, we may connect you to your local Emerge affiliate to best serve you.

$350 for the two and a half days of training, two breakfasts, two lunches, a dinner and all training materials.
