Training tomorrow’s Democratic leaders

The Hope Institute is designed to foster young politicos and accelerate their professional development. During this intensive, three-day crash course, the fellows learn strategies for entering into political careers and make professional contacts that will enhance their job searches. Fellows range in age from 20 to 25 and come from a wide variety of geographic and educational backgrounds—and all are eager to work on a political campaign during this critical election this year.

30 selected participants are chosen from a pool of 500 talented candidates from around the country. The Winter 2016 class had the opportunity to hear from former presidential campaign officials, congressional campaign managers, DNC leadership, Obama Administration leadership, and local candidates – including a special guest appearance by First Lady Michelle Obama.  

Thanks to your support, the Hope Institute is helping to train the Democratic political leaders of tomorrow.
