Practice some of the most important skills that you’ll use on a political campaign and see why working on a campaign can further your civic leadership.  

About the course

This course starts by making the case about why your leadership is needed on political campaigns. We discuss how campaign work can help you develop the skills and network to transition into high impact policy and advocacy roles.

This course also provides an overview of what working on a campaign looks like. Throughout the course, there are numerous opportunities to try out campaign work and practice creating some of the work products that are commonplace on campaigns.

The course concludes with information and guidance about securing a role on a campaign. During this course, you’ll be able to connect with members of LEE staff with your questions and to get feedback on your work product. The estimated time completion for this course is about 6-8 hours.
