Phase 1 begins the moment applicants are accepted into the program and enroll in the course, at which time access is provided to the online learning management system. Through this system participants will find instructional videos, readings, and reference materials. In this phase, we also hold 3 to 4 online group meetings to clarify learning expectations, acclimate participants to the learning management system, and introduce some of the key components of the program content.
A selective, rigorous and intense educational initiative, our program represents a unique opportunity for those men and women who have sacrificed for our freedom, or their family members, to take an important step toward continuing their commitment to public service through elected office. The program offers intensive training for veteran and military family members with career interests in politics.
All veterans and their family members are eligible to apply. Successful candidates must be able to demonstrate a strong potential for a future career in politics and an interest in running for public office.
