866-68C-ORPSCampaign Corps is a national grassroots organization dedicated to politically empowering young people. We recruit, train, and place recent college graduates as paid staffers on targeted, progressive Democratic campaigns throughout the country.
Each year, 30 to 40 staffers will be selected to participate in the program with all expenses paid. The program kicks off with an intense, week-long Campaign School in Washington, DC, in July. During the day, participants learn about all aspects of campaigns—voter targeting, field organizing, fundraising, media strategy, and more—from the best political professionals in the business. At night, participants work in teams and apply their knowledge hands-on in a ‘real-world’ campaign simulation. Participants are then placed on targeted campaigns as paid members of the campaign staff for the last three months before the election. Staffers have held positions from field operative to fundraiser to researcher, press secretary and even campaign manager.
Immediately following election day, we fly the participants back to Washington, DC, for a debriefing and retreat. We help participants find their next job by tapping into our vast network of alumni – who have gone on to work in a variety of organizations and careers, including Capitol Hill, issue based organizations, political consulting firms, and numerous national Democratic campaigns.
Interested students can apply online at www.campaigncorps.org/apply.
Additionally, if students are interested, they may take part in one of our weekend campaign workshops being across the country.
