The program begins with a
week-long, formal training seminar. Upon completion of the
seminar, each participant is assigned a specific area to
coordinate as a field organizer for a major Democratic campaign.
Participants work closely with trained supervisors and senior
the Strategic Consulting Group (SCG) to hone
their skills as political organizers while working as part of
the campaign team.
The program is intense. It
demands total commitment. It is "boot camp" for politics.
That means 7 days a week, 10-16 hours a day. Participants
develop relationships that last a lifetime, both with political
professionals and with other members of the program, and receive
career assistance after the election.
