HRC Youth College for Campaign Training; applications accepted


Applications are now being accepted for the Human Rights Campaign’s Youth College Campaign Training program, which will train 30 18-24 year old individuals in campaign work and skills. Trainees will also get a full-time, paid job with a campaign during the upcoming 2006 mid-term elections.

According to the HRC website:

Every election cycle, the Human Rights Campaign conducts Youth College for Campaign Training. Thirty energetic participants, ages 18 to 24, come to Washington, D.C., for an intensive week of hands-on training on how to run a winning campaign. After mastering the basic skills, participants spend two and a half months in regular staff positions in targeted political campaigns around the country, with stipends from HRC and housing from our friends.

According to HRC, 29 youth participated in last year’s Youth College program.

This programs sounds very beneficial to me and I urge any and all youth who are interested to apply for it. I wish I could apply for it but, alas, I’m already just a bit behind in the credits I should have for my two years spent in college. I think I’ll be spending my time in class, lol.

If you are interested, check out the HRC website for more information.
