do you feel called to serve again?

Answering the Call is a leadership development experience that invites military veterans and national service alumni, to reflect on the values that compelled them to serve in the first place, and if they now feel called to serve their community through politics.

This program is not a motivational seminar in which participants encounter speakers and content designed to convince them to run for office nor is it a training designed to teach the technical skills on how to plan or manage a campaign. Answering the Call is an opportunity for service leaders to undertake a deeply personal journey and reflect on who they are as leaders and if they feel called to political service, now or in the future.

Are you called to a second service? Begin your journey and apply today.

My experience with New Politics Academy drove home the reason I felt called to serving my country in the first place. Rarely have I been surrounded by such amazing and dedicated public servants. Quite simply, it changed the way I see politics. Like never before, I feel ready and confident to explore new opportunities to seek public office.

No [human] is great enough or wise enough for any of us to surrender our destiny to. The only way in which anyone can lead us is to restore to us the belief in our own guidance.
