Kirk Watson Campaign Academy Is Now Accepting Applications

by: Travis County Democrats

Fri Apr 11, 2014 at 03:29 PM CDT

(This is a great program. If you're interested or know a promising young person who wants to learn how to campaign, please send this to them! - promoted by Katherine Haenschen)

It's my sincere honor to host the Kirk Watson Campaign Academy. If you're a high school senior, college student or recent graduate that is interested in gaining campaign experience you should sign up.

This is a great opportunity to help Democrats win by learning the ropes of political organizing and campaigning. The Campaign Academy is dedicated to ensuring that every student has a rewarding and challenging experience, while making a difference in the political system.

The Academy will give students real - and unique - exposure to Texas-style politics. The best part of the program might be the daily lunch speakers, an unusually distinguished group that includes current and former elected officials, political consultants, university professors, journalists, and state policy experts. I've been happy to speak to the Academy every summer, and it was always a lot of fun - good students asking great questions.

The Campaign Academy will run June 2 to July 11, with sessions Monday through Friday from 10 a.m. until 7 p.m.

We are looking for proactive leaders in their communities, who are smart, energetic, committed to democratic ideals and principles, and most importantly looking to have fun while gaining experience in politics.

Participants can look forward to an unprecedented opportunity to network and learn from political activists and Texas political leaders.  They will receive first-hand experience working to change the political landscape on the leading edge in Central Texas, while learning marketable skills.

Are you interested? Do you know anyone who is? Apply online here, and follow us @KWatsonAcademy.

See you this summer!
