About the Program
The Renew U.S. Training Program will train professional progressive campaign managers and staff. We will support alumni of the program as they go on to manage electoral, ballot initiative, and issue campaigns in state legislatures across the country. The Training Program will include:
● Direct instruction, coaching, and project-based work
● Guest speakers, Q&As, and in-person events to facilitate community development
● Additional career support and opportunities beyond the duration of the program
The training will be entirely remote. Participation in the program is free! Need-based stipends will also be available by application.
Who should apply?
Renew U.S. is building a multi-state, multi-racial grassroots movement to address the overlapping crises of climate change, economic inequality, and racial justice. To do this, we are recruiting a diverse group committed to advancing an ambitious Green New Deal policy platform, prioritizing outreach to frontline, BIPOC, and working class communities. Dedication and alignment with our goals will be given preference over professional experience. All are encouraged to apply regardless of age, experience, education, or location. Priority consideration will be given to those who apply before August 16th, 2021. Those interested in applying should submit an application using the link below:
