Our Program

Fellows will work directly with elected officials in a range of different areas including research, advocacy, policy, communications, and case work depending on the needs of the office. Through applied, hands-on experience, the program will provide fellows with the practical tools required to understand and navigate the political process.

Fellows will be provided with intensive training prior to their placement as well as supportive mentorship and development training throughout their term. Experience gained will also be supplemented by a longer-term, vision project that fellows will work on collaboratively with the aim of impacting a worthy cause of choice.
