Emerge Arkansas boot camps are designed specifically for Democratic women and non-binary folks running in the current election cycle. Our 2024 boot camp will be held virtually April 3rd – 10th, with an additional orientation evening ahead of time. We’re accepting applications now through February 16th.

The boot camps have been developed by Emerge and our affiliates to give Democratic women the skills they need to refine and turbocharge their campaigns. Top political strategists and trainers will teach attendees critical elements of campaigning, including:

Campaign Overview & Structure

Centering Equity and Justice

Developing Campaign Plan & Strategy

Messaging and Media Relations

Social Media

Endorsements & Power Brokers


Field Campaigns

Public Speaking

Attendees who complete the boot camp will be inducted into the Emerge Arkansas alumnae network and have access to alumnae resources and support, as well as continuing education opportunities.
