CAMPAIGN CORPS, A Project of EMILY’s List

APPLY TODAY! DEADLINE APPROACHING: April 14th, 2008
Apply online at www.campaigncorps.org.

Campaign Corps, a project of EMILY’s List, is a national grassroots program dedicated to politically empowering young people. Each year we train talented recent college graduates (both from undergraduate and graduate) and place them on targeted, progressive Democratic campaigns. Formerly known as Participation 2000, Campaign Corps has been bringing young people into the political process since 1988. We’ve placed hundreds of staffers on some of the most important political campaigns in the country—providing young people with the first step in a career dedicated to progressive politics.

We are recruiting for the Campaign Corps Class of 2008. Applications are available online at www.campaigncorps.org and are due April 14th, 2008. Once selected, a diverse group of staffers will come to Washington for a week-long Campaign School, where they will learn the basics of political campaigning – voter targeting, field organizing, fundraising, and press strategy – from the country’s leading Democratic operatives. Staffers are paid to work side by side with candidates and other political professionals for the last three months of the campaign. After Election Day, Campaign Corps brings staffers back to DC for a post-election retreat and debriefing. Campaign Corps will help you launch your career in progressive politics!

All staffers receive a stipend of $1000 a month, free housing during the campaign, health care, and all travel expenses paid. (Previous campaign experience not a requirement)
