Answering the Call: Participant Application

Dear Applicant:

Thank you for your interest in participating in Answering the Call, a leadership development experience designed to help service alumni* explore their interest in potentially seeking political office.

A commitment to run for office is not a prerequisite for participation. Rather, we are seeking people who want to reflect on their personal aspirations to become more politically engaged in some form. Public service might include not only running directly for office, but also managing campaigns or working for public officials.

If you are a service alumni wondering if you feel called to serve again through politics, please take a few minutes to fill out the application below and tell us about yourself.

For questions please email:

*Veterans of military service and alumni of Peace Corps, AmeriCorps, and other long-term, full-time programs lasting at least 10 months

Please be sure you can make the first session (listed below), and at least 3 of the 4 following sessions. All times in local time per that city (Boston is EST, Los Angeles is PST, etc.). Please find full dates and locations here:
Applicant Statement of Understanding
The deadline for applying to the program is midnight on Friday, April 8th. Applications will be dealt with on a rolling basis, and I can expect to hear back within a week of submitting my application. I understand that upon acceptance, I will need to pay the $50 enrollment fee (or request and be granted a waiver) in order to be officially enrolled in the program. I understand that because this is a small group learning experience, my involvement and participation plays a significant role in the learning of the entire group. I agree that if accepted, I will make a good faith effort to make attendance at these sessions a priority in my schedule.
