New Politics Leadership Academy Applications Open for Spring 2022

New Politics Leadership Academy has opened applications for its Spring 2022 programs.

New Politics Leadership Academy is revitalizing American politics by recruiting and developing Servant Leaders. Their programs educate and train these outstanding individuals to serve in the political arena and build a pipeline of A-level staff to help them win.


Answering the Call (ATC)

Answering the Call is their servant leader-to-political arena introductory course. This five-session leadership development opportunity invites Servant Leaders to reflect on the values that compelled them to serve in the first place, clarify their core values, and explore if they feel called to serve again through politics.

This program is offered virtually twice each year, first in the spring and again in the fall. Join them for small-group, facilitated discussions with other service-minded individuals asking the same question you are: am I fit for politics?

Apply here.


Staffing School

New Politics Staffing School is a training that builds A-level campaign staff with the knowledge, skills, and networks required to thrive on the campaign trail. We provide a comprehensive approach to leadership development combined with our own campaign-informed training pedagogy.

This semi-annual program is ideal for students, early- and mid-career professionals interested in working in politics for the first time, and for current political staff with up to three years of experience looking to take their career to the next level; having a service background is not a requirement for this program.

Apply here.



Answering the Call helped you clarify your path — Foundations will help you lay the groundwork for a future campaign.

In Foundations, Servant Leaders will build on the work they began in Answering the Call by reflecting on their relationship with money and fundraising, organizing their personal network, exploring how their identity will influence their experience as a political candidate, and crafting a public narrative. Our staff of skilled political advisors will join each session to answer your questions and provide feedback on assigned homework.
