Boot Camps

2024 Arkansas Candidate Boot Camp is April 3-10

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.

Applications to join the Class of 2024 are now closed – please sign up to receive emails to stay informed about future training opportunities.

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

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.
