Campaign Bootcamp, run by the Institute of Politics and Public Service (GU Politics) at the McCourt School of Public Policy, will give students a behind-the-scenes look at political campaigning. GU Politics’ mission is to reconnect young people with the notion that politics is a noble vehicle for public service.
Over the course of the program, students will learn about the actual mechanics of campaigning from message development and polling to managing volunteers and getting-out-the-vote. At the end of the week, students will get to put their knowledge to the test by simulating a competitive political campaign and helping their candidate win!
Previous campaign or political experience is not a prerequisite to apply; just be sure to come prepared to learn about and work in the fast-paced and exhilarating world of campaigning!
