The Campaign Readiness Project is a train-to-hire bootcamp pipeline at the DNC with the goal of supporting states in their recruitment, training, and hiring of diverse, talented, and local staff for specific roles and skill sets on Coordinated Campaigns. Participation in these bootcamps will expand opportunities for consideration for campaign roles in targeted states with the aim of helping elect Democrats up and down the ballot. The next upcoming bootcamp series will center around Coalitions positions, and people who meet the qualifications outlined below are encouraged to apply. The Coalitions Bootcamp will be held virtually on Saturday, February 26, and a stipend is provided.
Applications close February 11, so act soon!
