Answering the Call Follow up activities

Join the Alumni Committee

Our Alumni Committee meets quarterly to discuss the goings on at NPLA and strategize new ways to connect alumni and build our movement. Our alumni are our community leaders on the ground and central to our work to bring service to politics.

Become an ATC Ambassador

ATC Ambassadors are individuals who are inspired by the mission of NPLA & willing to help with recruitment of participants for upcoming ATC programs. They will be in constant communication with our Director of Talent & Growth, Stephanie Armstrong.

Participate in Our Ongoing Reflection Experience, The Journey Continues

If you emerged from ATC clear that you’d like to run for office, but three or more years in the future, we offer Answering the Call-style one-hour small-group drop-in reflection sessions every month to provide a space for participants to stay present to your political questions and concerns.

Participate in Foundations

Foundations is our five sessions, online small group follow-up program for anyone who emerges from ATC with clarity that they want to run for office. We guide you through work that we know lays a solid foundation for a political campaign, no matter how far in the future you plan to run. You’ll go deeper into some of the reflection work you started in ATC and we will guide you through the work of organizing your network so your community is ready for your candidacy. As with ATC, there is a $50 enrollment fee which we can waive if it is a hardship. The dates for our next cohort are as follows:

  • Tuesday, June 18th: 8:00 - 9:00pm

  • Tuesday, July 2nd: 8:00 - 9:30pm

  • Tuesday, July 16th: 8:00 - 9:30pm

  • Tuesday, July 23rd: 8:00 - 9:00pm

  • Tuesday, July 30th: 8:00 - 9:00pm

participate in new politics campaign academy

New Politics Campaign Academy is a weekend intensive training that builds a pipeline of A-level campaign staff with the knowledge, skills, and networks required to thrive on the campaign trail. We believe that the best staffers have communities of peers and mentors they can learn from, lean on, and share best practices with. We provide a comprehensive approach to leadership development combined with our own campaign-informed training pedagogy. Our next training will be in 2020 (exact dates TBD)!
