Boot Camps

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

Emerge Washington plans to host boot camps every year for Democratic women running for office who weren’t able to participate in our full Emerge training.

The boot camps have been developed 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
Social Media
Developing campaign plan & strategy
Endorsements & Power Brokers
Messaging and Media Relations
Field Campaigns
Public Speaking
And much more!

Emerge Washington will be holding two boot camps in 2019.

Walla Walla Boot Camp – April 26-28th

Tacoma Boot Camp — May 10-12th

You can apply for the boot camp(s) here. 

Tuition varies by election year and location, 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.
