Boot Camps

Designed especially for women who want to run this election cycle.

Emerge and our affiliates are hosting boot camps this year for Democratic women running in the 2018 election cycle.

The boot camps have been developed by Emerge and our affiliates 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!

Tuition varies by region and state, and includes the training, associated materials and food. Participants are responsible for their own lodging. Attendees who complete the boot camp will be considered Emerge boot camp alumna 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.
